As 2015 begins, Nintendo UK have announced new joiners and a handful of departures internally.

MCV reports that social media and community manager Jonathan Town and product manager Vanisha Kavia will leave the company this month.

“We are sorry to see Jonathan and Vanisha leave the Nintendo family, they have both been valuable members of the UK and we wish them both luck in the next phases of their careers,” Nintendo UK marketing director Shelly Pearce commented.

Meanwhile, Ashley Day has been promoted to social media and digital content manager, with Gemma Hall joining the consumer marketing team’s ranks as product manager for kids and gamers. Gemma previously worked as a games account manager at Target Media, where she handled the company’s Bethesda account.

“We’re really excited to be welcoming Gemma to the team,” marketing manager Chandra Nair began. “Gemma is bursting with Nintendo passion but also brings a wealth of digital marketing strategy to our team.”
