Gamestop’s body is ready?
Yes, you have read that title correctly, Gamestop, the local video game retailer has hired three new independent members to its Board of Directors. Those people being William “Bill” Simon and James “J.K.” Symancyk and former President of Nintendo of America, Reginald “Reggie” Fils-Aimé.
William “Bill” Simon and James “J.K.” Symancyk. Mr. Simon and Mr. Symancyk’s appointments are effective immediately; Mr. Fils-Aimé’s appointment will be effective April 20th, 2020. GameStop’s Board also announced a number of corporate governance enhancements, implementing new guidelines for Board tenure and Committee refreshment, also effective immediately.
It is hard to say if bringing on Reggie will save Gamestop who has been seeing declining sales in recent years, but hopefully the board will back Reggie which his ideas will breath new life into the dying retailer and maybe keep Gamestop around a bit longer.
