GameStop’s chief ethics and compliance officer has been promoted to serve as the company’s interim general counsel.
Mark Robinson assumed the role in June following the departure of Dan Reed II, according to a report from Bloomberg Law this week. Robinson has reflected the new position in his LinkedIn profile. He has been at GameStop for six years, hired as a senior counsel in August 2015 and promoted to vice president, assistant general counsel in April 2020.
Robinson’s responsibilities as assistant general counsel included his holding the CECO title. He also served as secretary of the company’s audit committee.
Reed’s departure as general counsel followed a June 9 management shakeup at GameStop, in which Matt Furlong was named chief executive officer and Mike Recupero chief financial officer. Both Furlong and Recupero came from Amazon. They began their roles on June 21 and July 12, respectively.
Ryan Cohen, co-founder of the e-commerce site Chewy.com, gained three seats on GameStop’s board in January after obtaining a 13 percent stake in the company, Bloomberg reported. He has been pushing the company to pivot from its brick-and-mortar stores to an e-commerce platform among other changes.
GameStop did not announce or comment on Reed’s departure.
