You read that right, but its not THAT bowser. Nintendo of America has hired Doug Bowser to oversee sales related functions in the US. Doug was previously employed at EA from 2007 to now. Bowser will report to Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing, who had this to say:
“Doug Bowser is an outstanding addition to our Nintendo team, as he brings a deep blend of both consumer package goods and video game sales experience,” said Moffitt. “I know he will work tirelessly with our internal and external partners to ensure the broad Nintendo product lineup of hardware, software and accessories are strongly represented throughout U.S. retail points of distribution.
When asked for what he hopes to bring to the organization, he could not answer due to having a princess over his shoulder as he traversed stepping stones surrounded by lava.
JK We wish him the best of luck.
