Report: The New President of Sony Is Kaz Hirai, the Boss of Playstation

Nikkei is reporting that Kaz Hirai will finally be promoted to President of Sony (in April). If you remember, Hirai has been the Playstation boss for quite some time and was rumored to be in talks of becoming President as far back as November 2010. Sony sure took its time with this one.

So now Kaz's duties expand to cover all of Sony as President while Howard Stringer is still CEO and Chairman. Hopefully the Kaz and Stringer combo can bring Sony back to its glory days. Maybe? Possibly? [Nikkei via The Verge, Image Credit: Wikipedia]
