All of Nintendo’s Directors Saw an Improved Approval Rating This Year Except President Kimishima

Nintendo recently held its 76th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, and the meeting brought some changes to Nintendo’s board of directors. Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima proposed a corporate restructure last April, and it was officially approved on June 29th. As a result, four of Nintendo’s Directors resigned their positions, and five new Directors were added to the board.

As always, Nintendo held an annual vote to decide if the current Directors should be retained, and (excluding the Directors who resigned) all of them were. During this process, all of the Directors were assigned approval ratings by the shareholders. The results were largely positive, as every Director had an approval rating of 90% or higher, and each returning Director saw an improved rating over last year. The lone exception is Kimishima himself, as his approval rating dipped from last year’s 92.60% to 87.14% this year. You can check out the full list of Directors and their approval ratings below.

– Tatsumi Kimishima: 87.14% (92.60%)

– Genyo Takeda: 95.26% (92.07% )

– Shigeru Miyamoto: 95.26% (92.08%)

– Shigeyuki Takahashi: 95.87% (94.46%)

– Shuntaro Furukawa: 96.38%

– Naoki Noguchi: 94.78%

– Yoshimi Mitamura: 96.81%

– Katsuhiro Umeyama: 97.49%

– Naoki Mizutani: 95.15% (94.52%)

Nintendo Has Officially Restructured its Board of Directors, Replacing Four Members

Back in April, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima announced plans to shake up Nintendo’s corporate structure. Under Kimishima’s proposed plan, five new Directors would be appointed (with four stepping down) and a new Audit and Supervisory Committee would be formed. Under this proposal, Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime and Nintendo of Europe President Satoru Shibata would also both be promoted to the position of Managing Executive Officer.

Kimishima’s restructure plans were approved at Nintendo’s 76th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, and the new Directors are now officially in place. As usual, Nintendo also voted on whether or not to retain its current Directors. Tatsumi Kimishima, Genyo Takeda, Shigeru Miyamoto, and Shinya Takahashi, were all voted in once again, and they will remain on the Board of Directors.

The four Directors that have resigned their positions are Shigeyuki Takahashi, Satoshi Yamato, Susumu Tanaka, and Hirokazu Shinshi. They have been replaced by Naoki Noguchi, Naoki Mizutani, Yoshimi Mitamura, and Katsuhiro Umeyama, the four members of the Audit and Supervisory Committee. Additionally, Shuntaro Furukawa has joined the board of Directors.
