Tatsumi Kimishima, who is the current CEO of Nintendo of America, has been promoted to managing director and will head back to Nintendo headquarters in Japan.
Additionally, he will also be assuming of general manager of Corporate Analysis and Administration, and general manager of the General Affairs Division.
Due to his departure, current Nintendo president, Satoru Iwata, assumes the role of Nintendo of America CEO, and Reggie Fils-Aime will still be the president and COO of NOA, and now he will be reporting to Iwata. That shouldn’t be too hard now for him, right?
One major benefit of this move is that it “will support the company’s unified global strategy, allow streamlined decision making and enhance Nintendo’s organizational agility in the current competitive environment.”
Personally it would be nice if more Japanese games head to America without significant delays.
