Former Square Enix producer Shinji Hashimoto joins Sony Music Entertainment

    Following his retirement from Square Enix, former producer Shinji Hashimoto announced that he’s joined Sony Music Entertainment as a senior advisor. Alongside his position at Sony Music Entertainment, Shinji Hashimoto also joins subsidiary ForwardWorks as a board member.

    Here’s what Hashimoto had to say via Twitter:

    “Apologies for so many personal posts, but I wanted to share some news that today I have started work as both a senior advisor at Sony Music Entertainment, as well as a board member at their subsidiary, Forward Works.

    At my previous role, I had always been supported both by others in the industry, as well as countless fans, and I would like to continue to focus my efforts into the creation of entertainment. I am turning over a new leaf, per se, but it might be a bit of time before I can share exactly what I am working on in these new roles. When it seems like the time is right, I will be sure to share an update with you all.

    It’s going to be a new adventure for me as I get a bit older at 64 years old, but as always I appreciate everyone’s support. For those reading this around the world, please give me some time to share more. To all of the creative minds out there, I look forward to working with you!”
