Putting the right people in the right places is key for the future says new EA CEO
Andrew Wilson, EA's newly unveiled CEO has been talking about how the company will move forward from here on in.
He stressed the importance of having the right people in the right places in order to ensure that EA can deliver the kind of experiences that consumers expect from a company at the “cutting edge of innovation”.
Wilson began,"We are working diligently to ensure we maintain operational excellence by putting the right people in place. We are working to fail as fast as possible, and listening to our consumers every step of the way to ensure we are delivering on what they expect from us."
"The big thing about a modern digitally driven company that is operating at the edge of innovation to deliver unbelievably immersive experiences for our gamers is that you have to figure out what works and what doesn't very quickly, to ensure the consumers get the best of everything you make. And it is a culture and philosophy that will underpin how we go to market in the future to make sure we're delivering experiences that live up to consumer expectations," he continued.
On the question of whether the next console generation will encourage growth in the industry Wilson was emphatically positive.
Wilson added, "When we think about consoles moving forward, there is an energy moving around our industry right now that we haven't seen in some time. For us, we believe there is absolutely growth in consoles driven by amazing games and services but, at the same time, the expanding user base as a result of mobile, PC free-to-play and emerging markets, represents a very significant opportunity for us that we're going to investigate."
