GameStop names former Amazon execs Matt Furlong, Mike Recupero as its new CEO, CFO

GameStop said Wednesday that it has appointed former Amazon executive Matt Furlong as its new CEO.

Furlong will start his new role on June 21.

The video game retailer is in the early days of trying to turn around its business.

It has named a fresh slate of executives to lead its shift from being a brick-and-mortar retailer to an online player that can fend off competitors like Walmart, Sony and Microsoft.

Over the past few months, it has hired three former Amazon executives, Jenna Owens, its new chief operating officer; Matt Francis, its first chief technology officer; and Elliott Wilke, its chief growth officer.

It named him chairman at a shareholder meeting Wednesday.
