“I’m thrilled to welcome Helaine to the team,” says Kotick. “With more than 25 years in strategic communications and public affairs, her experience will be invaluable to our organization. She's the right person to help us tell the next chapter of the Activision Blizzard story.”

Klasky previously served as chief communications officer at SoundExchange, a non-profit collective rights management organization.
