Embracer Group has announced significant leadership changes, with Deputy CEO and Chief Financial Officer Johan Ekström stepping down. Ekström, who joined the company in 2019, will remain until March 31, 2025, to ensure a smooth transition before leaving for personal reasons.

Starting June 1, Phil Rogers will assume the role of Deputy CEO of Embracer Group while continuing his duties as CEO of Crystal Dynamics—Eidos and leader of the ‘Middle-earth Enterprises & Friends’ division. On September 1, current Deputy CFO Müge Bouillon will take over Ekström’s responsibilities as CFO.
