He’ll work together with John Kodera and Kazuo Miura, the President/Chief Executive Officer and existing Deputy President respectfully. Basically, Ryan has more responsibilities than ever…

That’s not to say that he’ll be overwhelmed. He’s held many senior positions over the course of his twenty-three years with the company. In that time, Ryan’s found success in multiple endeavors, including the “launches of the PS4 Pro and PlayStation VR” as stated by John Kodera.

"It's a huge honor to be named a Deputy President of SIE," said Jim Ryan. "I'm looking forward to leveraging the experience that I have at PlayStation, both in Europe and also in leading Global Sales and Marketing, to support John Kodera as SIE strives to further expand the PlayStation business globally. Together with all our employees and partners, I'm committed to continuing to deliver unique entertainment offerings that are only possible on PlayStation."

I’d imagine that Jim Ryan was an easy pick considering his track record. Hopefully, that he continues to do a good job!
