Satoru Iwata named one of world’s best CEOs by Barron’s
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.
