Alan D. "Al" Stone was a former president and chief operating officer of Sega Enterprises USA.

Stone and business partner Ron Judy established the Seattle-based Far East Video in 1978[1], becoming the official representitive of Nintendo in the country.

He was promoted to president of the division in mid-1994, replacing Tom Petit who left to work at Acclaim Entertainment, and was promoted again to president and COO of the company later in the year.
