Report: Zynga Inc (ZNGA) COO, CTO, and CPO To Leave Next Week

Posted Aug 13, 2013

Zynga Inc (NASDAQ:ZNGA) is facing a major management shakeup under newly appointed chief executive officer Don Mattrick.  According to AllThingsD, Zynga’s chief operating officer David Ko, chief technology officer Cadir Lee, and chief people officer Colleen McCreary is going to be leaving the company next week.

When Mattrick became CEO of Zynga, he created a 90-day plan to turn the company around and it appears that changing around upper management is part of that plan.

?[I want to get] under the hood to evaluate every aspect of our business. [I will conduct] top-to-bottom business reviews and work with our leaders to calibrate against the market opportunity and to go after it with a real sense of urgency,? stated Mattrick. ?Zynga?s still a young company, and we have the capability to break some bad habits and get back to some good fundamentals. And while my approach in the first few weeks is to listen and learn, when it becomes clear what change is necessary, I?ll move quickly and decisively to do what?s in the best long-term interests of our players, employees, and our shareholders.?
