GDC keynote liveblog. But you know who's going to be paying even closer attention? Cynthia Gordon, who begins her tenure as Nintendo of America's new VP of corporate affairs on March 14. In addition to preparing for the upcoming North American 3DS launch, she'll be responsible for handling any new products that are announcemented today at GDC. (For her sake -- and ours -- let's hope that doesn't include a surprise We Dare localization).
Gordon fills the void left by Denise Kaigler's departure and brings her experience managing various family-friendly consumer brands, including Dunkin Donuts and Universal Orlando Resort. She most recently served as SVP of 360 Public Relations, a video game-oriented agency that features the parent-friendly "MomSquad." She was also once director of the Chrysler account at GolinHarris, Nintendo of America's current PR firm.
