Satoru Iwata appointed Nintendo of America CEO
Alongside releasing their financial results for the fiscal year ending March 31st 2013, Nintendo have announced a management restructuring.
Such decision has been made to “support the company’s unified global strategy, allow streamlined decision making and enhance Nintendo’s organizational agility in the current competitive environment.”
Tatsumi Kimishima is being promoted to managing director of Nintendo Co. Ltd, having previously been Nintendo of America’s chairman and CEO.
Moving across to Nintendo’s Kyoto headquarters, Kimishima will assume the roles of general manager of Corporate Analysis and Administration, as well as general manager of the General Affairs Division.
Such positions had been held by Yoshihiro Mori and Masaharu Matsumoto, each to soon retire from the company.
Global president Satoru Iwata has therefore now been appointed as Nintendo of America’s CEO, with Reggie Fils-Aime continuing as president and chief operating officer.
