Pokémon USA has announced that its president, Akira Chiba, who has lead the company since 2002, will resign Jan. 1 to pursue other opportunities. Vice Pres. Kenji Okubo will assume the position.

"During Mr. Chiba's tenure, Pokémon USA has greatly expanded," Okubo said. "The brand is topping industry charts across all categories - including video games, toys, and trading card games - plus the Pokémon animated TV series is hugely successful on Cartoon Network. We thank Mr. Chiba for his efforts on behalf of Pokémon and wish him success in the future."
