I could have sworn he was president of Nintendo's US division, NoA, at one point. But it was such a long time ago, I don't really remember much. --I run like a Welshman 05:56, 19 Dec 2004 (UTC)

I think you're confusing him with Howard Lincoln. I could be wrong, though. Andre (talk) 06:14, Dec 19, 2004 (UTC)
No, although Howard Lincoln does seem to be CEO now on a quick google search (at least he was in 1999). I remember Howard Philips resigning sometime in the pre-SNES era. I was only a kid then so I could be remembering things wrong. I might have to dig through my old Nintendo Power magazines and find out, but first have to remember where I put them. I have stacks of that magazine in storage somewhere, every issue up until around the time the Nintendo 64 came around in the mid 90s. --I run like a Welshman 06:45, 19 Dec 2004 (UTC)
Ok, it turns out he was president of the Nintendo Fun/Fan Club, of the magazine, not Nintendo Of America itself. He sure was a bit of an oft-seen character in that magazine's cartoons, which is why I thought he was a former CEO who was probably trying a bit of a fun-loving type of image for Nintendo's audience. --I run like a Welshman 07:08, 19 Dec 2004 (UTC)

I think it's actually "Phillips", not "Philips". Every time I see it in Nintendo Fun Club newsletters, it's two "L's". Additionally, it's that way in Nintendo Power...and on his current website ( ). See "About/Experience" for information on his Nintendo days. It also apparently hosts some presentations he's recently done about interactive software. Could this warrant a "disambiguation" page with the other guy with two L's?
