Nintendo welcomes two new marketing execs

It's a fact that, thanks to a relocation, Nintendo's been losing marketing execs like a colander with with marketing exec-shaped holes in it. But honestly, when customers are leaping on your products and mauling them, grizzly bear like, as soon as they hit the shelves, what purpose does your marketing team really serve anyway?

Regardless, Big N announced today that they've brought on two new additions to their marketing staff. Bill Van Zyll will be the new director and general manager of Latin America, while Denise Kaigler will serve as vice president of Marketing & Corporate Affairs, taking over for the departing Perrin Kaplan. We would imagine both will be reporting to the Maytag repairman for all their training needs.
