Jim
Ryan

CEO / President

After many years leading Sony’s gaming operations in Europe, Ryan assumed leadership at SIE in early 2019, when PlayStation’s domination of the last console generation was undeniable, having shipped nearly 100 million PlayStation 4 units (now over 112 million as of August 2020) with exclusive games consistently topping year-end lists and selling well (July 2020’s “Ghost of Tsushima” has sold over 5 million units since launch). The success of 2018’s “Marvel’s Spider-Man” was so vast that developer Insomniac became the latest addition to SIE Worldwide Studios, with follow-up game “Miles Morales” leading the launch titles for PlayStation 5’s November release. Now, it’s Ryan’s job to guarantee another generational win for PlayStation as he works on updating the PSVR headset and adding subscribers to PlayStation Now in order to better compete with Xbox Game Pass, but the PS5 is off to an exceptional start already, reportedly nabbing the highest domestic unit and dollar sales for a launch month of any gaming console in history (per the NPD Group).
