The top Nintendo executive has confirmed he will soon be leaving after more than 15 years with Nintendo of America.
Nintendo of America has made it official. Nintendo Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications George Harrison will be leaving the company he joined in 1992 by the end of 2007.
"I have confirmed to all employees that I will be leaving at the end of December and not making the move to California," said Harrison to the Reuters news service. Harrison did not mention what he would do after his departure from Nintendo.
This confirmation comes amidst the rumors that most of Nintendo's top executive staff would not be making the move to the San Francisco area along with the bulk of Nintendo's sales and marketing teams. Nintendo Director of Public Relations Beth Llewelyn and Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Affairs Perrin Kaplan have also been mentioned as possibly leaving Nintendo, but have not yet confirmed their intentions.
