Yoshiaki Koizumi (in Japanese: 小泉 歓晃; born April 29, 1968) is the director of Super Mario Sunshine, Donkey Kong Jungle Beat and Super Mario Galaxy. He also worked on significant contributions to other major Mario games, such as Super Mario Kart, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island, and Super Mario 64, but under different roles.
Yoshiaki Koizumi plays an important role during E3 2019's Nintendo Direct presentation, announcing Bowser as the new president of Nintendo's North American branch.
