Longtime Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime is retiring after 15 years with Nintendo, 13 as President and COO. He will be succeeded by Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America's current Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Bowser has been with NoA since 2016 but also worked for EA and Procter & Gamble.

“Nintendo owns a part of my heart forever,” Fils-Aime said. “It’s a part that is filled with gratitude – for the incredibly talented people I’ve worked with, for the opportunity to represent such a wonderful brand, and most of all, to feel like a member of the world’s most positive and enduring gamer community. As I look forward to departing in both good health and good humor, this is not ‘game over’ for me, but instead ‘leveling up’ to more time with my wife, family and friends.”

“It has been my great fortune to work with and be mentored by Reggie for four years at Nintendo of America,” Bowser said. “And rest assured, we will continue to build on his work to evolve and expand our brand, furthering Nintendo’s global mission of creating smiles. There are millions more of those to come.”

Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa accepted Fils-Aime's retirement and thanked him for his service to the company over the years.
