Nintendo of America’s executive president of sales and marketing, Cammie Dunaway, has announced that she will be leaving her position, effective October 1st. Since joining the company in November of 2007, she’s been a famous (or infamous, depending on who you talk to) face in the company. Dunaway is accepting a position outside of the video game industry, which as of yet remains undisclosed.
Reggie Fils-Aime, the president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America had the following to say:
“We appreciate Cammie’s contributions to Nintendo and the role she played in bringing the Wii and Nintendo DS experiences to millions of people. Her team and the rest of Nintendo of America remain focused on our goal of maintaining the incredible momentum Nintendo enjoys heading into the busy holiday season.”
Dunaway’s own words upon leaving:
“I’m thankful for my time with Nintendo and proud of our team’s accomplishments in growing the Nintendo audience. I look forward to watching the continued growth of the Nintendo brand in the years ahead.”
