Satoru Iwata re-elected CEO of Nintendo

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014

Shortly before E3, Nintendo released a press statement announcing that its CEO, Satoru Iwata, would not attend the event this year due to health concerns. A few days ago, before Nintendo’s 74th Annual Meeting of Shareholders, Mr. Iwata released a statement that, due to an internal growth detected during an examination, he had to go through surgery. The surgery was successful, Iwata said, and he is now in recovery. We at Shinesparkers would like to send our support to Mr. Iwata and wish that his recovery proceeds as smoothly as possible.

Meanwhile, although he wasn’t able to attend the meeting, Mr. Iwata was re-elected and remains director, president, and CEO of Nintendo Co., Ltd.
