Months after its last CEO exited, GameStop on Thursday announced that Ryan Cohen is the company’s new top leader.
“Mr. Cohen will not receive compensation for serving as the company’s president, chief executive officer and chairman,” GameStop said in a two-sentence statement. Cohen had previously declined to receive compensation for serving as a non-employee director, according to a May proxy statement.
Cohen, a billionaire activist investor who founded Chewy, bought a financial stake in GameStop in 2020. He became board chairman in June 2021.Retail Dive
