There have been a number of changes in the staff of Nintendo of America in recent times. At the end of last year, Nindie lawyer Damon Baker announced that he left the company after 12 years. This came with Reggies retirement in April, which was then replaced by the appropriate term Doug Bowser.
The newest person to join Nintendo of America is John Vignocchi. After less than a year at Gearbox Publishing as an executive producer on a new franchise, Vignocchi has decided to move to Nintendo. Prior to his short stay at Gearbox, he was best known as the executive producer of toy video games, Disney Infinity .
Across multiple tweets on his Twitter account ] John explained how he would "run developer and publisher relations with North America" so that Nintendo could continue to bring great games and great content to all its fans . He also made it clear that he has the best interests of the company and describes how he will "continue the tradition of building memories through Nintendo" that will last a lifetime.
Vignocchi himself already has a "lifetime" of Nintendo memories and can't wait to do more in his new role. He considers it a "dream opportunity" and promises to give it his whole:
"I am humbled by this dream opportunity and will work tirelessly to bring you the best I can."
Give John a warm welcome in the comments below.
