Nintendo mends wounds, hires new execs to replace old, ditchy ones

Filed under:

No company can stop employee turnover (especially when it bifurcates its US operations and expects everyone to uproot their families just to be closer to press it’d really rather ignore), but at least Nintendo’s got a game plan to start bandage its wounds from executives lost in the rapid-fire departure of Harrison, Llewelyn, and Kaplan. Next up to bat: the company’s new EVP of sales and marketing, Cammie Dunaway, and EVP, special assignment, Shigeyuki Takahashi. (Seriously, that’s his job title, not the name of the next Phoenix Wright game.) They’ll get going on November 5th and 1st, respectively, with Dunaway hard charging to get consoles and games into the hands of the Nintendo-uninitiated, and Takahashi conducting “special research activities and providing perspective to the sales and marketing department” (read: playing Xbox all day).
