After nearly a decade with the company, Peter Moore is leaving EA (and the gaming industry) to become the new chief executive officer of Liverpool Football Club.

During his time with EA, Moore was the company’s COO and the president of EA Sports. Recently, he was appointed as EA’s Chief Competition Officer.

“Peter will leave an incredible legacy,”  EA CEO Andrew Wilson said in a personal statement. “Peter led our sports business to some of its biggest moments as President of EA SPORTS. As our Chief Operating Officer, he helped us navigate the transformation of our company and the evolution of our business in a digital world. In the past year as Chief Competition Officer, he has driven EA’s rapid expansion in competitive gaming. Above all, through his time at EA, Microsoft and Sega, Peter has been a statesman and advocate for our industry.

“I believe deeply in following our passions and dreams in life. Spend every moment doing something that you love. We’ve been fortunate to have Peter doing that with us here for almost a decade. We could not be happier to see him take the helm at Liverpool, and I personally could not be more honored to call Peter a dear friend for life.”

Peter Moore will officially start his new role this June, and will report directly to the club’s owners, Fenway Sports Group.
