EA LA COO Darrell Rodriguez has been named as Jim Ward’s replacement as the head of LucasArts.

“Having worked at both Electronic Arts and Disney Imagineering he brings the perfect blend of production, operational, and creative expertise,” Lucasfilm president Micheline Chau said in a statement. “For a games company such as LucasArts with its roots in film, this is an electric combination.”

Ward left earlier this year, citing “personal reasons” for the departure.
