Scott Moffitt


Scott Moffitt, the Executive-Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Nintendo of America, will be leaving his post a bit later this summer. This comes after Nintendo decided to get rid of this job position within the company altogether. The responsibilities tied to this position will be absorbed by other existing staff members within Nintendo of America.

Before joining Nintendo in 2011, Scott Moffitt worked for Henkel Consumer Goods. There he spent five years serving as their Senior Vice-President. During this time, he oversaw personal care brands such as Right Guard, Dial, and Tone. His extensive experience doesn’t stop there, as he also spent 7 years working for PepsiCo.

In May of 2011, Moffitt joined Nintendo of America and took on the role of Executive Vice-President of Sales and Marketing. The post had been held by Cammie Dunway until she left the company that year. She took over the position after current Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime, moved up the corporate ladder, leaving that position behind. Reggie Fils-Aime got the position in 2001 after Peter Main retired.

While you might think that Moffitt could be upset about this, sources inside the company have described the split between him and Nintendo as “Amicable”. Scott Moffitt will remain at Nintendo through July to help “ensure a smooth transition.” A representative from Nintendo also provided the following statement about the situation:

“Scott Moffitt, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, has decided to leave Nintendo of America. In order to ensure a smooth transition, Scott will continue to work through the end of July. Nintendo has a strong group of seasoned leaders in place who will step in to assume the full responsibilities of the role on a permanent basis, with the objective of driving more collaboration and greater efficiencies across these groups and among the respective leaders. We thank Scott for his years of service and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.”
