Now that the June deadline date for Nintendo of America staff has reared its head, the fallout from Nintendo's Sales and Marketing move has been leaked. According to GameInformer's sources, approximately 90% of the Nintendo of America Sales and Marketing Staff has decided not to make the move to either San Francisco or New York, thereby taking a severance and leaving the company.
Three key executives will be leaving Nintendo of America, including Senior Director of Public Relations Beth Llewelyn; Vice President, Marking and Corporate Affairs Perrin Kaplan; and Senior Vice President, Marketing and Corporate Communications George Harrison. When these three will actually depart the company is unknown at this time, however, GameInformer is betting on the fact that they'll stay with Nintendo of America until the upcoming E3 show is over.
Currently, this basically wipes out the majority of Nintendo of America's key marketing executives. The only two major executives remaining at Nintendo of America include Chairman and CEO Tatsumi Kimishima and President and COO Reggie Fils-Aime. However, whether or not they will be packing a U-Haul and trekking to San Francisco or New York is unknown at this time.
