Miles Flint (yes the Miles Flint) is going to be taking some time off. He spent 17 years with Sony and Sony Ericsson and will be replaced by the one and only Hideki “Dick” Komiyama on November 1st. Flint cited a desire to “develop new personal and business opportunities” after taking a short career break to weigh his options. Maybe he’ll try to get the band back together. Maybe he’ll take up water skiing. Maybe he’ll finally get the chance to backpack through Australia with the money he’s saved up. The world may never know.
At any rate, so long and congratulations, Miles Flint. We hardly knew ye.
