Earlier this month, the General Manager of Nintendo UK, Simon Kemp, left the company to pursue other career opportunities. However, Nintendo just revealed that his role has been taken over by Nicolas Wegnez, who has worked at the company for over twenty years. His most recent position at Nintendo was the marketing at PR director for Nintendo Iberica, which tends to the company’s Spanish and Portuguese operations.
Joining Wegnez, two more Nintendo of Europe employees recently moved to Nintendo UK. Matthias Hempfling is now the company’s marketing and PR director, and Kalpesh Tailorhas is the new head of communications.
