He was president of Nintendo, died a year or two ago from cancer, real shame because he was only 50 and was really quite talented and hard working.

He did a bunch of work on Earthbound and Pokémon, along with many of Nintendo's inhouse titles.
Like for Pokémon Gold & Silver they were having space problems, couldn't fit everything they needed to fit in the Gameboy Color cartridges available at the time. Iwata was asked to optimize it and so he did, to the point that not only could the fit the new worldmap as intended, but also the entire old worldmap from Red & Blue as a postgame bonus.
