GameDaily: Nintendo's George Harrison announces retirement


Hot on the heels that the Big N is looking for someone to fill a top marketing position, GameDaily BIZ is reporting that George Harrison, a senior Nintendo VP, will be retiring from the company, though he will help transition the sales and marketing team from Redmond to New York.

According to "an industry source at a major publisher," Harrison, the Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications for Nintendo, distributed a voice message at the company revealing his "early retirement." At this point, GameDaily is unsure if that means a retirement just from the House of Mario, or from games all together. Some of you may remember that Harrison's departure (along with Kaplan's and Beth Llewelyn's) was rumored by Game Informer in June. We wish the departing Harrison all the best.
