Beth Llewelyn Leaving Nintendo

Nintendo’s Senior PR Director won’t be making the move to San Francisco this fall.
 http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/newsArt.cfm?artid=14480

 Beth Llewelyn, Nintendo’s Senior Director of Public Relations, confirmed today that she will be leaving the company at the end of this week. In an e-mail to Gamespot, Llewelyn  wrote, “after nearly 12 years with Nintendo, I will be leaving the company at the end of this week."  She further elaborated on what the immediate future holds in store for her.   “I’ll be taking some time off to be a full-time mom for a bit. My four year-old daughter and one year-old son won’t know what to do with Mommy around!"    


Earlier this year, Nintendo of America announced it would be relocating its public relations and marketing staff from Redmond, Washington to Redwood City and New York City in an effort to be closer to major gaming media and retailer centers. Subsequently, rumors began to fly that many of NOA’s most familiar faces, including George Harrison, Perrin Kaplan, and Llewelyn, would elect to leave the company and remain in the Seattle area with their families rather than make the transition. Llewelyn’s announcement comes less than two weeks after George Harrison, Nintendo’s Senior Vice President of Marketing and Corporate Communications, confirmed that  he would be leaving Nintendo as well.    


Llewelyn’s last day with the company will be Friday, September 28.

Though she didn't give away much during video interviews I've seen, she was a nice voice to listen to.

Let the axing continue.

They really should axe more of NoE's management staff instead.
