The president and CEO of Square Enix's American operations has left the company.
Polygon reports that Mike Fischer, who joined Square Enix in July 2010, left the company earlier this month. Fischer is now working as vice president of digital music and video for Amazon Japan.
Fischer has updated his LinkedIn profile to reflect the changes.
Square Enix is currently undergoing a costly restructuring, which recently contributed to its net loss of ¥13.7 billion (approximately $134m/£87m) for the financial year.
Former Square Enix CEO Yoichi Wada also resigned in March after spending 12 years in the role, and the publisher has said it is unhappy with the sales of its AAA titles Tomb Raider, Hitman: Absolution, and Sleeping Dogs. Square Enix's Los Angeles studios have also suffered from job cuts.
Prior to his tenure at Square Enix, Fischer worked for Microsoft, Sega, and Namco Bandai.
