Current CEO of Nintendo of America and a director of its parent Nintendo, Tatsumi Kimishima, is getting a promotion in the near future. If the shareholders approve Kimishima will become NCL managing director and transfer from NOA in Redmond, Washington, to NCL headquarters in Kyoto, Japan.
Tatsumi Kimishima will be performing both the duties of general manager of Corporate Analysis and Administration, and general manager of the General Affairs Division. Currently, these positions are held by Yoshihiro Mori and Masaharu Matsumoto. However, both of them are set to be retiring by the end of this summer. That is when Tatsumi Kimishima is expected to assume his new role.
His position will be filled by company’s global president Satoru Iwata. Reggie Fils-Aime will continue in his role as president and COO of NOA, reporting to Iwata.
All of this information came out of Nintendo’s financial report. You can view the complete report here.
