Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima’s approval ratings are up 10% with shareholders. Which isn’t a huge surprise, considering that the company has been on a roll lately, with the release of the Switch and several great games.
In fact, Kimishima’s approval rating is now greater than Shigeru Miyamoto’s.
During Nintendo’s 77th Annual General Meeting, shareholder re-elected the five Board of Directors, which are:
Tatsumi Kimishima: 97.70 %
Shigeru Miyamoto: 97.59 %
Shinya Takahashi: 97.65 %
Shuntaro Furukawa: 97.65 %
Ko Shiota: 97.65 %
As the numbers show, they all have pretty much universal support from shareholders. But it wasn’t always like that. Just a year ago, Kimishima’s approval rating was 87%.
The Switch sure did turn a lot of things around for Nintendo and Kimishima (and his approval rating). And it looks like the good times will continue for a while (as long as Nintendo can keep making enough Switch consoles).
