Lewis joined Microsoft in 1989 and had held various positions within the Xbox business since its inception.

Microsoft is now seeking a replacement.

“Since joining Microsoft as one of the first UK employees in 1989, Chris has made significant contributions across the partner, enterprise and retail businesses," said CVP of Microsoft's devices and studios marketing group Yusuf Mehdi.

"He has been a distinguished leader for our Xbox team in Europe – overseeing the launch of the original Xbox, Xbox 360, Kinect and most recently Xbox One, and growing the business significantly across the region.

“Following that success, Chris has now chosen to retire from Microsoft and focus on his other business and personal interests. We wish Chris nothing but the best, and we thank him for everything he’s contributed to Xbox and Microsoft as a whole over the past 25 years.”

Thanks, MCV.
