Former mobile exec appointed to publisher's board of directors

EA veteran Frank Gibeau joins Zynga

Frank Gibeau, an EA veteran of nearly 25 years, has joined mobile gaming company Zynga.

The former EA executive VP has been appointed to the publisher’s board of directors. Gibeau left EA in May this year after more than two decades with the company. He had been a key player in the firm’s mobile business, leading strategy and managing its ever-growing mobile portfolio that includes The Simpsons: Tapped Out, Plants vs Zombies, Real Racing and Minions.

“Zynga has the products, the people and the powerful plan needed to make its mission to connect the world through games a reality," said Gibeau.

"Mark’s uncompromising passion for Zynga and commitment to social games is unparalleled. I look forward to partnering with him and my fellow board members during this incredibly exciting time for Zynga and the broader mobile gaming industry.”
