WoW guild master apparently a really good qualification for running Best Buy

Normally, when electronics retailer Best Buy chooses a new executive vice president and president for Best Buy Digital and Global Business Services, WoW Insider doesn't cover the event. Still, one little tidbit in the Best Buy press release announcing the promotion of Stephen Gillett caught our eagle eyes:

Gillett, an avid gamer, is widely considered one of the most innovative Guild Masters in World of Warcraft, the massive multi-player online role-playing game where millions of gamers enter a virtual world creating guilds, engaging socially, questing and celebrating achievements.

I'm not sure I've ever heard of the guild that Gillett leads, but it's probably a really awesome one. And I bet that Lisa Poisso will be grabbing him for a 15 Minutes of Fame column soon. Still, it's cool to see a press release actually treat World of Warcraft as something to be proud of, rather than a really embarrassing thing you have to hide from your date because you're afraid she'll think you're a nerd.
