The New York Videogame Critics Circle has announced that Reggie Fils-Aimé has been elected as a new member of the organization’s board of directors.
The Circle’s programs include offering mentoring, internships, workshops, job information, and college scholarships for intelligent but underprivileged students as part of the DreamYard Project, or holding community events at The Henry Street Settlement.
“I’m pleased to welcome my long-time friend and gaming industry veteran, Reggie Fils-Aimé, to the board of the New York Videogame Critics Circle, where his extensive experience will strengthen our board of directors,” explains New York Videogame Critics Circle founder and board president, Harold Goldberg.
“Reggie’s history of leadership and industry disruption will be a tremendous asset to the organization as we continue to execute on our mission of giving back to our underserved communities.”
Reggie Fils-Aimé adds: “Drawing from my years of experience in the gaming industry for having a big-picture perspective, and from my roots as a kid from the Bronx, joining the New York Videogame Critics Circle board of directors feels like a natural fit.
“I have an admiration for the work that the NYVGCC has accomplished in giving back to communities since its inception and can’t wait to jump in and contribute to the success of the organization.”
