Zynga lets another key member leave

By Nick Akerman, Tuesday, 18 September 2012 15:53 GMT

Wilson Kriegel has left Zynga. The former OMGPop chief revenue officer joined the company when it acquired the Draw Something developer in March 2012.

Kriegel follows a host of high-profile names out the door. COO John Schappert, CMO John Karp, CCO Mike Verdu and many others have left the social gaming company across the past few months. Kriegel focused on monetisation and business development at Zynga Mobile, and has not announced his plans for the future.

Thanks, GI.
