Sony Chairman Howard Stringer To Resign in June
He started at Sony way back in 1997, practically an era ago in technological measurements, and led as the top man for 7 years. Here's his quote upon deciding to leave: "A new world is opening up for me, too, one that allows me to complete my plan to retire from Sony, which I expect to do at the conclusion of my term later this year. That will allow me to move forward with new opportunities Ive been presented with lately."
While we're sure Sony executives will toss Stringer a party on the way out, we doubt anyone will be upset that he's leaving. If Sony's going to enter this brave new world, having some fresh minds at top might not hurt.
