Pierre Perron, Sony VP North Western Europe comments: “Sony has gone from strength to strength over the past twelve months and Warren’s experience complements our ambitions to accelerate even further. Having worked for some of our biggest competitors, we are certain that Warren will add great value to the team.”
Warren Saunders adds: “This is an incredibly exciting time to be joining Sony. It’s a brand that has so much affinity with consumers and the only manufacturer that can boast such a wealth of experience across so many content and entertainment sectors – whether that’s gaming with PlayStation or music and movies with Sony Music and Sony Pictures. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into this role and help push Sony to the fore of our partners and consumers mind when considering which smartphone brand to back.”
