As many Nintendo fans will know, Reggie Fils-Aimé stepped down as Nintendo of America’s president last year. Since then, he’s lectured at Cornell University plus joined GameStop’s board of directors – and it looks like he’ll soon be getting busier once again!
Childrens’ entertainment company Spin Master Corp. has announced that Reggie will be joining their board of directors with immediate effect. You can find the official announcement below:
TORONTO, May 7, 2020 /CNW/ – Spin Master Corp. (“Spin Master”) (TSX: TOY), a leading global children’s entertainment company, today announced that the nominees listed in its management information circular were elected as directors of the company at its Annual Meeting of Shareholders held earlier today.
The results included the election of two new independent Board members, bolstering the Board’s experience in two key focus areas within Spin Master’s long-term strategy; entertainment and digital gaming. Reggie Fils-Aimé, former President and Chief Operating Officer, Nintendo of America Inc. and Christina Miller, former President of WarnerMedia’s Kids, Young Adults and Classic division, both join Spin Master’s Board of Directors effective immediately.
For those unfamiliar, Spin Master produces toys for franchises such as PAW Patrol, Hatchimals, and Bakugan. Reggie himself celebrated this development on social media – excited that he would be helping out in the toys industry:
What do I have in common with Bakugan, Hatchimals, PAW Patrol, GUND, Air Hogs, Sago Mini and Kinetic Sand? Answer: I am joining the board of Spin Master Corp. — an innovative force in the global toy industry. A new way to make life more fun!
