Kenji Hisatsune, who was president and CEO for Namco Bandai Games America before the branch's restructuring last month, will now lead Square Enix's North American mobile team.
As vice president of Global Mobile Content for Square Enix, Hisatsune will oversee the company's strategic direction in North America, while also overseeing relationships with its major mobile platform partners in the country.
Hisatsune built many relationships with national carriers, platform partners, and game publishers while he headed mobile and casual game company Namco Networks America for seven years.
Most recently he was the CEO and president of Namco Bandai Games America -- the branch's parent company restructured and combined its Western teams
last month to emulate its success in Japan, and appointed a new head for the group.
