The two interested did A declaration. Cédric Mimouni indicates:

First of all, I would like to thank Ina for the quality of her work on the Xbox brand and the efforts made to make it shine in France in many aspects. Ina is my friend and she will be missed. It is with honor and humility that I continue my journey at Xbox, where I have spent the last ten years of my professional life in different roles and different countries. I will put all my energy into continuing to make Xbox a great place for everyone in France.

For her part, Ina Gelbert says:

After 4 exciting years at the head of Xbox in France, it’s time for me to take a turn in my professional career, and carry out a project that I’ve been thinking about for a long time.

These past four years have been nothing short of incredible, and I find it hard to measure how lucky I have been to be able to work on so many exciting projects, with such a great team, in an ecosystem rich in creativity and innovation, and above all also promising and unifying. As a woman in the video game industry, I was keen to promote diversity and give more visibility to talented women who contribute to this industry, while encouraging younger people to join us. I am convinced that diversity, and not just gender diversity, is an essential driver of innovation and the success of teams, and I hope that the various initiatives led by Xbox in France have made it possible to highlight this topic in our beautiful industry.

I’m going to another world, but I’ll always be happy to meet you to talk games and Xbox at the first opportunity.
