The lights are on
THQ is continuing its course-correcting efforts to recover from recent troubles with the announcement of a new executive vice president in charge of production. Ron Moravek co-founded Relic Entertainment and helped guide the sale of the Company of Heroes studio to THQ in 2004.
Moravek will report directly to THQ's president, Jason Rubin. He brings 14 years of experience to the position. In addition to his work at Relic, Moravek was vice president and COO of EA Canada.
“Ron is an exceptional development executive with unique perspective on the industry from both a creative and business point of view,” Rubin says. “His entrepreneurial experience as well as his ability to drive dynamic teams is a great fit for our strategic objectives. Additionally, Ron’s experience building high-quality products will help us continue to deliver great games and build upon our foundation to innovate digitally in the future.”
THQ has suffered numerous setbacks over the past few months, including fallout from the uDraw tablet, which flopped at retail. The company nearly had its stock delisted from the NASDAQ exchange after consistently trading below one dollar.

Hope this is a move for a positive future, definitely do not want to see THQ go away.
Let's hope this is a positive step for THQ. I would hate to see them go out of business.
This should workout
Maybe this will mean better business for THQ in the future... Assuming they don't collapse that is.
I really hope THQ finds their way out of this mess. They publish some really solid games. It's too bad they can't seem to generate more sales though.
Seems like he has enough experience to succeed.
please do a new 40k rts, it will help you a lot.
I like how THQ is bringing in more people with extensive developer experience into their business and management positions, rather than just hiring by the numbers businessmen. Hopefully these moves will shape the company into one that is focused on limiting creative stress with developers, as these guys really know what it feels like to be on that end of the industry.
Well it's good that THQ knows it needs more experienced people to run the company so that has to be a good sign.
Cool.. now can he please fire cory ledesma plz?
Good for you THQ.
I really like space marine. So I hope this guy and the new president can do something.
I like tis move
