He may be a bit old, but all those years have given him the great wisdom and experience needed to handle the job he has today. We wish him a Happy Birthday, and a great career with Nintendo moving forward! You can read a bit about Kimishima’s history below:

“Kimishima’s time with Nintendo began in 2000, when he became the Pokémon Company’s Chief Financial Officer. In 2001, he was appointed the President of Pokémon USA Inc. He succeeded Hiroshi Yamauchi as Nintendo of America President in 2002 and was promoted to Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board in 2006. The Nintendo of America President position was succeeded by Reggie Fils-Amie. Another promotion came about in April of 2013 when Kimishima became the Managing Director of Nintendo Co., Ltd and his Nintendo of America CEO position would be succeeded to Satoru Iwata as an additional role.
