Colin Decker, who just officially became CEO of Sony’s Crunchyroll — after merging Funimation’s anime streaming catalogs into a single offering — is leaving the company.

Decker is exiting the post after more than three years at Sony, originally joining the conglomerate with its 2019 purchase of Funimation. Sony bought Crunchyroll for $1.18 billion in cash from AT&T, and Decker was appointed head of the consolidated anime/manga entertainment group. Last month, Sony announced that the two erstwhile rivals would merge into a single unified Crunchyroll service.

With Decker’s departure, Rahul Purini, Crunchyroll’s COO who was formerly the chief operating officer at Funimation prior to the brand integration, will now lead the company. The management changeover was announced Tuesday in a memo to staff sent by Keith Le Goy, Sony Pictures Entertainment’s chairman of distribution and networks.
