Konami Promotes 5 Execs to VP

Konami Gaming announced last month that five senior directors have been promoted to vice president in each of their departments.

The promotions come after the company experienced a recent period of great success, brought on largely by a strong executive team, according to an announcement by CEO Satoshi Sakamoto.

Executives accepting the promotions are Tom Jingoli, Yuji Taniguchi, Tom Soukup, Jack Schaffer and Jennifer Martinez.  Their departments range from games, customer service, human resources, systems, and compliance.

“We have to embrace the current market challenges with strong leaders who can work collaboratively across disciplines,” Yogonet reported Sakamoto saying in her announcement. “We have the right people combined with innovative products and services so we are well positioned to continue to gain market share. Our executive team which includes our newly appointed Vice Presidents is the team to do just that.”
