Last year saw a big loss in the passing of long time Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner. His vision transitioned Hasbro from a toy company to the one we see today, focusing on brands and entertainment in addition to our plastic goodies. Today the company has named Chris Cocks the new CEO. He was previously President and CEO of Wizards of the Coast and Digital Gaming division, where he expanded properties like Magic the Gathering into even more successful parts of the company. Interim CEO Rich Stoddart will step down in February and become Chair of the Board. Hopefully the vision set out by Brian Goldner to transform the company continues and grows under Cocks.
