June 30 will be the last working day at Microsoft for Xbox's director of marketing, Jerret West. He decided to move to Roblox. After his departure, the corporation will make changes to the structure of the marketing department.

  • The Xbox Game Studios team, reporting to Matt Booty, will take over game marketing.
  • The Xbox team, reporting to Sarah Bond, will handle the marketing of consoles and other hardware.
  • The international marketing team, reporting to Ami Silverman, will be handled by Microsoft's consumer sales department.

This is the second time West is leaving Microsoft. He initially joined the corporation in 2003 but left in 2011 for a vice president position in digital marketing at American Express. He then worked at Netflix for several years before returning to Microsoft in 2019 to oversee the launch of the Xbox Series consoles.
