According to a news report from VentureBeat, John Smedley, long time CEO of Daybreak (going back into its early days as Sony Online Entertainment), has stepped down and is being replaced by former COO Russell Shanks.

At this time, it’s unclear what this change in staffing will do to affect Daybreak’s games and services.
