First, he oversaw a string of C-suite departures and hirings. Then, he was <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/gamestop-ecommerce-ryan-cohen-leading-strategic-committee-2021-3" data-analytics-module="body_link" data-analytics-post-depth="40">appointed leader of a new committee</a> overseeing a company-wide "transformation."</p><p>That transformation has led to major changes in the company's executive suite and its board. </p><p>CEO George Sherman is the only remaining board member from before Cohen got involved with the company.

His <a href="https://twitter.com/ryancohen/status/1375159657166209031">most recent tweet</a> is a GIF from the movie "Ted," of the titular character smoking a bong. On the most recent GameStop earnings call, Cohen did not appear.</p><p>Representatives for Cohen did not respond to requests for comment as of publishing.</p><p><em><strong>Got a tip'</strong> Contact Insider senior correspondent Ben Gilbert via email (<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org" data-analytics-module="body_link" data-analytics-post-depth="100">email@example.com</a>),</em><em> or Twitter DM (<a href="https://twitter.com/RealBenGilbert" data-analytics-module="body_link" data-analytics-post-depth="100">@realbengilbert</a>).
