Don Mattrick announces three more Zynga exec departures
Zynga CEO has announced that three more executives have left the company. Gamespot reports that – as expected – chief technology officer Cadir Lee, chief operating officer David Ko, and chief people officer Colleen McCreary have left Zynga as part of Don Matrick’s restructuring efforts. Zynga has been going under a restructuring process for several months now, with the first major acquisition being Microsoft’s Don Mattrick.
In an email to all employees, Mattrick said of the trio’s departure, “We are taking layers out of the executive rank to get senior leaders closer to important product initiatives, With that in mind, I have asked the leaders to sharpen their focus and properly densify talent to resource teams.”
“Each person has contributed to the growth of Zynga and I would like to take this opportunity to thank Cadir Lee for his dedication in the creation of a world class technical organization during his five year tenure, Colleen for her work with our recruitment and people process over the last 4 years, and David Ko for the 3 years that he spent in leading various teams across the organization. We appreciate their contributions to Zynga’s first chapter and wish them well in their future endeavors.”
