UPDATE: Jungsoo Lee to Take Over Nexon America
UPDATE: We have received word from Nexon about the rumors swirling around Nexon America (see below):
Rich Williams has announced he will be leaving Nexon America at the end of the month to start his own marketing firm. We’re pleased to say Nexon America will be his first client. Jungsoo Lee, who is currently the executive director of live games and has been with Nexon America since he helped establish this subsidiary in 2006, will be promoted to lead the company moving forward.
We have begun to hear some rumblings of an as-yet unconfirmed rumor that there is a shake up underway at Nexon America. According to sources, an executive from Nexon Korea will be taking over management for all games currently being run by Nexon America and that the NA executive leadership is on its way out. For now, it seems that current and planned games in 2017 will be unaffected by the change.
We have reached out to Nexon for a statement regarding the rumor and will update this article as we obtain additional information.
