Also confirmed, Doug has no relation to King Koopa or anyone else from the Nintendo mythos. The aptly named Bowser will play a key role in the company&rsquo;s national sales strategies, most specifically at retail.</p> <p>While Mr. Bowser has certainly never appeared in a Nintendo game, he has had his fair share of experience in sales at the corporate level. After a tenure at Procter &amp; Gamble, Bowser went on to play a major role at EA as the vice president of global business planning.</p> <p>Nintendo said he will be managing a number &ldquo;of sales-related functions, including in-store merchandising, retail strategy, and retail marketing.&quot; Nintendo of America&#39;s executive VP of sales and marketing, Scott Moffitt, seems to think he is well suited for the job as well: &quot;Doug Bowser is an outstanding addition to our Nintendo team, as he brings a deep blend of both consumer package goods and video game sales experience.&rdquo;</p> <p>While only time will tell if Bowser will fit with Nintendo as well as his name may suggest, Nintendo is on the up-swing having announced its first annual profit in four years recently.</p><p><a rel='alternate' href='https://www.techspot.com/news/60752-nintendo-hired-bowser-new-vp-sales.html' target='_blank'>Permalink to story.</a></p><p class='permalink'><a rel='alternate' href='https://www.techspot.com/news/60752-nintendo-hired-bowser-new-vp-sales.html'>https://www.techspot.com/news/60752-nintendo-hired-bowser-new-vp-sales.html</a></p>[/parsehtml]

    Methinks they may just as well hired Jon "Bowzer" Bauman from the 70's/80's rock n roll band Shanana and get better results.
