Hiroshi Yamauchi 1927-2013 president of Nintendo

 .


Due to his young age and total lack of any management experience, most employees did not take Yamauchi seriously and many resented him. Soon after taking over, he had to deal with a strike by factory employees who expected him to cave in easily. Instead, he asserted his authority by firing many long-time employees who questioned his authority.

 Yamauchi would only accept the position if he were the only family member working at Nintendo. Reluctantly, Yamauchi's grandfather agreed, and died shortly thereafter. Under the agreement, his older cousin had to be fired.

 Yamauchi led Nintendo in a "notoriously imperialistic style"


 he created three research and development groups and allowed them to compete against each other. This caused the designers to work harder to try to get their games approved.

Yamauchi also refused to accept his retirement pension, which was reported to be around $9 to $14 million, feeling that Nintendo could put it to better use.
