Nicolas Wegnez has been named the new general manager at Nintendo UK.
He replaces Simon Kemp, who left the firm last week to persue new career options. He held the role since November 2012.
Wegnez is a familar face within Nintendo, having held positions at the platform holder for more than 20 years. Most recently, he served as marketing and PR director at Nintendo Iberica – looking after the firm’s Spanish and Portugues operations.
Wegnez begins his new role today.
