William Gordon has announced he is to leave EA after spending the last ten years at the firm as its chief creative officer.
Gordon is moving to Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, a Silicon Valley venture capital firm, to “provide his unique insight and expertise to entrepreneurs in consumer technologies.”
“There is a new generation who have grown up ‘always on, always digital,’” said Gordon. “Driven by their creativity and new usage habits, entertainment and communications are on the verge of previously unimaginable changes. Ever since KPCB funded Electronic Arts’ initial business plan in 1982, I have watched the KPCB team find and support brilliant company-makers to harness disruptive digital technologies that benefit people. I cannot wait to join the firm, and work directly with an all-new generation of entrepreneurs.”
