Reggie Fils-Aimé, who retired from his position as CEO and president of Nintendo of America only about six months ago, is returning to school. Fils-Aimé will be teaching at Cornell University’s Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management in Ithaca, New York later this year.

Fils-Aimé announced the new pursuit on Twitter this past Thursday. He previously graduated from Cornell University in 1983.

Fils-Aimé’s formal title is “Leader in Residence,” which according to his Linkedin profile, means he’ll “meet with students and lead discussions centered around leadership, conscious capitalism, and service.”

Before he joined Nintendo of America, Fils-Aimé worked in various senior roles for Pizza Hut, the makers of Guinness, a major bicycle manufacturer in Europe, and VH1. He was president of Nintendo of America from 2006 to early 2019, and was replaced by fellow Nintendo executive Doug Bowser.
