EA Sports Announces New CEO is Andrew Wilson

/ Sep 18th, 2013 No Comments

[adsense250itp]This week, EA Sports announced Andrew Wilson as it’s new CEO. EA’s former CEO, John Riccitiello resigned this March after poor first quarter financial performance. The position was vacant until the announcement this week that EA had found their new leader.

Wilson previously served as executive producer of the FIFA franchise and Executive Vice President of Origin. Larry Probst, Chairman of the Board for EA and temporary CEO after Riccitiello’s resignation, led the search for a new CEO that resulted in EA hiring from within. Wilson is fiscally focused which is no surprise given the reason for the resignation of EA’s former CEO. In a message from Wilson posted on EA’s blog, he stated that his future focus as head of EA would be “Continued transformation for our digital future; Delivering amazing games and services across platforms; and Instilling a culture of execution that will drive profitable growth.”

Quick Take

It’s tough to remember that gaming developers and publishers are businesses too. Ultimately, it’s all about the benjamins and very corporate announcements like these are a reminder that EA is just as knowledgeable about running their business as they are about how to make good games.
