GameStop (GME) begins search for new CEO

GameStop is reportedly looking for a new CEO

2

The leading video game retailer GameStop is eyeing a massive change, as new reports state that the company is currently looking for a new CEO. This comes on the heels of a busy few months for the company, as it made some major changes to its business model, while also seeing intense volatility in its stock.

This news comes from an exclusive report at Reuters. According to three sources, GameStop is currently looking to replace George Sherman as its CEO. A large reason behind the move is the company’s recent shift from brick and mortar to e-commerce. This makes sense, as GameStop reported a 34% increase in e-commerce sales in Q4.
