Despite recovering from a surgery that prevented him from attending the annual share-holders meeting for Nintendo, president Satoru Iwata was voted back in as the president and CEO of the company for another year. We didn’t get the full approval rating for Iwata when the announcement was made, but it looks like he’s met with an 80.64% approval rating, which is up from last year’s 77.26%. This is still down overall, compared to his 90.60% approval rating in 2012 before the launch of the Wii U.
According to reports, Iwata is recovering well and should be back to his regular duties soon. Other approval ratings for board members were released, with Shigeru Miyamoto taking a 5.93% hit from last year, dropping him to 86.81%. Tatsumi Kimishima also fell 89.11%, which is down from the previous year. Despite Iwata gaining approval and both Miyamoto and Kimishima falling, it seems share-holders are still overall pleased with the direction that its executives are leading the company.
