UK marketing team loses another long-serving member

Nintendo's UK marketing manager Rob Lowe is to leave the company on June 1 after eight years and join BBC Worldwide as marketing director.

"Rob has been a valuable member of the UK marketing team and whilst we are sad to see him go, we are proud to watch a member of our Nintendo family start a new chapter in their career," offered David Yarnton, general manager of Nintendo UK.
