CEO of Nintendo Satoru Iwata was named to Barron’s Top 30 CEO’s in the world. Congrats to Mr. Iwata and to Nintendo.

Iwata’s selection is a reflection of Nintendo’s success, with still-sold-out Wii and titles like Brain Age leading the charge. The magazine notes that under Iwata’s leadership, Nintendo’s holdings have swelled to $6 billion and resulted in a 15.4% share price increase year-over-year for Iwata’s tenure, with an 82.5% share price increase this year alone.
