Games For Good
Zynga is committed to the idea that games—as well as those who create and play them—can make the world a better place. That’s why the company includes charity features in many of its applications. Since 2009, the organization has collected and distributed nearly $25 million to more than 50 nonprofits around the globe. Zynga also sponsors an annual employee service week filled with fundraising events and opportunities, then matches the total amount raised one for one.
With a culinary team that crafts gourmet meals all day and on-site cafés boasting the best coffee drinks, employees are always fueled up. When they need to refocus, employees can head downstairs to the full-facility gym, with acupuncturists, trainers, and masseurs—or take the short walk to Zynga’s suite at the Giants Stadium.
In It Together
Any creative endeavour takes courage and vulnerability to undertake, and at Zynga, employees thrive in an environment that encourages risk-taking, honest dialogue, and constructive criticism. Employees are rewarded through a “thank you” note system, and even the office space—with its bright, open environments balanced with private work rooms—contributes to the feeling of openness at Zynga.
As Zynga’s CEO and with over 25 years of experience in interactive entertainment, I’ve led the company’s turnaround and transition to rapid growth. Our market cap during my tenure has nearly tripled, due to optimizing live services and fortifying the company’s portfolio of wildly popular franchises, including CSR Racing, Words With Friends, and Zynga Poker. Our groundbreaking series of studio acquisitions, including Gram Games and Small Giant Games, along with innovation and success across our games portfolio, has positioned Zynga as among the fastest growing public gaming companies in the world in 2019. Since I joined in 2016, we have acquired a pipeline of games, including global hits Empires & Puzzles and Merge Dragons! and have secured game development partnerships with some of the world’s most iconic brands and entertainment franchises, such as Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. Most recently, I served as the Executive Vice President of EA Mobile, where I led strategy, publishing and product development for the company’s fast-growing mobile games business. In that role, I managed EA’s portfolio of popular mobile franchises including The Simpsons: Tapped Out, Plants vs. Zombies, Real Racing, Bejeweled, Star Wars, Minions, SimCity, EA SPORTS and The Sims. Since joining Zynga, I’ve served as the Chairman of the Corporate Advisory Board for the Marshall School of Business at the University of Southern California. I previously served on the Board of Directors for Cooliris, a mobile content and communication technology company; and, Graphiq, a data visualization company.
