About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Atari today announced that James Caparro has resigned his position as Atari's President and CEO, effective immediately. The board of directors appointed current Chairman and Chief Creative Officer, Bruno Bonnell, to act as CEO on an interim basis.

The Atari board has started searching for a permanent president and CEO for the New York-based company, which announced in February it would overhaul its operations by closing two studios and spending more time and money on improving game development.

As announced by Glenayre Technologies in an SEC filing on June 3, 2005, Mr. Caparro entered into an agreement to become the President and Chief Executive Officer of Entertainment Distribution Corp., a division of Glenayre.

Bruno Bonnell stated, "Atari has assembled a senior management team that is moving forward to execute its strategic objectives. The team -- from product development to marketing and sales to finance -- possesses enormous energy and experience to lead us as we evolve into a more dominant force in the entertainment industry."
