After 5 years working at the company’s US headquarters, a key Nintendo personnel will say good-bye. Nintendo of America Executive VP Scott Moffitt is leaving the company at the end of July.
Nintendo shared with IGN the following statement about Moffitt:
Scott Moffitt, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, has decided to leave Nintendo of America. In order to ensure a smooth transition, Scott will continue to work through the end of July. Nintendo has a strong group of seasoned leaders in place who will step in to assume the full responsibilities of the role on a permanent basis, with the objective of driving more collaboration and greater efficiencies across these groups and among the respective leaders. We thank Scott for his years of service and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.
Like the response says, the position of Executive VP of Sales and Marketing will be dissolved and all responsibilities will be shared among other top employees at the company. The agreement between Nintendo and Moffitt about his departure was amicable as mentioned by sources.
Before working for Nintendo, Moffitt worked at Pepsi since 1999 and at Henkel since 2006. Also, Cammie Dunway held the position at Nintendo until 2010 before Moffitt moved in to work at Nintendo.
