Chris Lewis, Xbox VP of EMEA, has announced that he will be retiring from Microsoft, ending his 25 year tenure after he first joined in 1989. He will leave officially in the coming weeks and Microsoft has immediately started looking for a replacement. Chris Lewis played an integral role in the launches of several Xbox products- Xbox 360, Kinect, Xbox One- and was largely responsible for the 360’s incredible success in the UK, so much so that it even became more successful than the PS3 in the region.

“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 Yusuf Mehdi, CVP of Microsoft’s devices and studios marketing group. “

“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.”
