Zynga has lost a new bunch of executives this month, according to GamesBeat. Words With Friends lead Travis Boatman, head of acquisitions Terence Fung, and former head of the company's Ville franchise Steve Chiang, have all left Zynga. Unlike previous departures, these latest ones seem to be part of CEO Don Mattrick's plan to tighten up Zynga at its top-level. The company said in April that CFO Mark Vranesh was also leaving.
A Zynga spokesperson declined to comment on the departures, but one person close to the company said that the changes reflect Mattrick’s ambition to remake the company and its strategy so it can be successful in the transition to mobile games. Some of the executives who left did so on their own, according to GamesBeat, but further details on that were not available as of this writing. Mattrick asked others to leave, and still others were reassigned to some completely different roles, according to GamesBeat.
