Neo joins the team following the departure of Capcom Europe chief of operations David Reeves; However, it is yet unknown in what capacity he will serve the company. His role at Konami was filled last year by Shinji Hirano, coinciding with the relocation of Konami European HQ from Germany to the U.K.

He also oversaw several entries in the Metal Gear franchise including Metal Gear Solid 4, Metal Gear Acid and Metal Gear: The Twin Snakes.
