    Just about a year ago, the former Nintendo of America CEO Reggie Fils-Aime set his sights on GameStop, joining the retail chain's board of directors. It looks like Reggie is moving on already, though, with the announcement that he plans to leave before the end of 2021. Currently, GameStop has had a wild year, making the headlines consistently throughout the fallout regarding Wallstreetbets and the GME stock battle, a disappointing fiscal year report, and now the retirement of Reggie, and eight other senior board members. While an exact date of departure hasn't been given, it's expected that he'll be leaving sometime around June, when GameStop will be having its annual shareholders meeting.

    Guess he was just a year's income away from having enough saved to retire.

    Well Bowser is in charge of NoA.

    Do you really think he can just walk in, collect 70 stars and swing him at a bomb?

    Ok I'll admit, I didn't even know he went to Gamestop after Nintendo. Almost seems like a step down, minus what happened last month.

    He's leaving the sinking ship, I guess. Reggie has enough other side jobs to keep him occupied...

    Re: "that was quick/sinking ship"

    Maybe.
    However ailing companies will often hire a team of all star types or turnaround types and after that initial period then they bugger off to be replaced with a "business as normal" set.
    I have no idea which this might be but I do have to note it is not necessarily so clear cut.
