May 29, 2009 // 11:07 pm - Last year Atari hired former Sony Worldwide Studios boss Phil Harrison to serve as President. Now? Now he's no longer President.

According to a statement made by Atari as part of the company's fiscal year report:

Because of a shift of business operations to the US, Phil Harrison will move from the role of President to that of non-executive Director of the Group. As all Board members, he will continue to assist, support and guide the Company's strategy.

He's still sticking around, sure, but the whole "non-executive" thing makes his new job title sound awfully ceremonial.

Which, if correct, is a shame for Atari, since Harrison is one of the most well-known and successful public faces a company can hope for in this business.

No word yet on what this move means for both Atari and Harrison, along with who, exactly, will be replacing him (the company's report does not specifically name a replacement).
