It’s an honor to be recognized by the New York Game Awards for my work in an industry that I’ve committed so many years to. But, it’s not just about the time I’ve committed to the gaming industry and specifically to Nintendo, it’s about the people along the way I’ve had the opportunity to lead, influence and inspire. Receiving this honor is a great reminder that my goal of being (and remaining) a strategic and leading force in the industry is recognized by my peers.
Reggie will be set to collect the award on January 21, 2020 at the SVA Theatre in Manhattan.
