It seems a bit more corporate shuffling has taken place at Activision Blizzard -- this time with employees gamers are probably less likely to be familiar with. The good news is that this isn't a departure or layoff, or any of the other shufflings we generally cover. Instead, the company announced it has hired former GE and SoundExchange executive Helaine S. Klasky to take on the position of chief communications officer for the game company.

Klasky is replacing Kristin Binns, who left the position in 2018. Binns has taken on a newly-created position. She will now serve as senior advisor for the company. What, exactly, that position entails has not been stated, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, both Klasky, and Binns will report directly to Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick. Considering how the Blitzchung incident played out last year, a new chief communications officer might be just what the company needs.
