Nintendo's Perrin Kaplan reveals her exit strategy, finally

Filed under: , , ,

George did it. And so did Beth. Now, as forecast, it's Perrin's turn. Nintendo Vice President of Marketing Perrin Kaplan has announced her retirement from the company after 15 years of service.

Kaplan did not give an explicit reason for her departure, saying only, "I finally will be leaving Nintendo at the end of the year. Until then, I am focused on getting a great transition team in place and handling all of my normal responsibilities as well." It had been speculated that the marketing exec trio -- now all officially on course to retire -- would leave Nintendo after plans to relocate the company's PR headquarters from Washington to San Fransisco and New York were revealed in May. But this remains pure speculation. Think about it: there are all sorts of circumstances that could prompt Kaplan's resignation ... well, actually, we can only think of one.
