There's been a lot of changes going on at Square Enix in the past year with staff leaving the company altogether, staff joining other studios in the Square Enix family and the internal development structure getting redone again and now there's another move that's been quietly done.

It was revealed earlier this year that Shinji Hashimoto was no longer heading up a game development studio and was instead now general manager of the company's new Media & Arts Business Division and later that he was no longer overseeing the Kingdom Hearts series as brand manager. Now it's been realized he's also been given a promotion.

He joined the company's board of directors last year alongside others but now he is the company's Executive Director which places him as the second highest ranking person in Square Enix only under President and Representative Director Yosuke Matsuda.

Congrats to Shinji Hashimoto on the promotion.
