Chris Lewis, vice-president of Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business for EMEA, is retiring from the company this year, MCV reports.

Joining Microsoft UK in 1989, Lewis spearheaded the company's Specialist Center reseller program in Europe, and later served as the company's regional vice-president for retail sales and marketing. Lewis took on his role at Xbox Europe in 2008, helping to promote and expand the Xbox 360's presence across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Xbox chief marketing and strategy officer Yusuf Mehdi notes that Lewis departs the company this year in order to "focus on his other business and personal interests."

"[Lewis] has been a distinguished leader for our Xbox team in Europe - overseeing the launch of the original Xbox, Xbox 360, Kinect and most recently Xbox One, and growing the business significantly across the region," Mehdi said. "We wish Chris nothing but the best, and we thank him for everything he's contributed to Xbox and Microsoft as a whole over the past 25 years."
