In his announcement, Brunswick noted that Fils-Aimé, throughout his career, has “revitalized brands and reshaped various industries,” which is a good sign as to why they hired him. Fils-Aime worked at Nintendo for 15 years, and prior to that he held executive and managerial positions at VH1, Pizza Hut, and Procter & Gamble.
The Brunswick government filing announcing the hiring of Fils-Aime indicates that it has not yet determined which committee Fils-Aime will sit on on the board of directors. He also states that Fils-Aime’s compensation will be “in line with that paid to all non-Brunswick directors”.
As for what Nintendo is doing up to these days, the company is celebrating Mario’s 35th birthday and getting ready for the launch of Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity very soon for Nintendo Switch. An improved version of the Switch is expected to be released in early 2021.
