Zynga's chief operating officer exits company -AllThingsD
SAN FRANCISCO Aug 13 (Reuters) - Several senior executives at gaming company Zynga Inc, including chief operating officer David Ko, have left the company, according to an AllThingsD report published Tuesday.
The clear-out comes a little more than a month into the tenure of Don Mattrick, a former Microsoft Corp executive who was named Zynga CEO on July 3. Later that month, Mattrick asserted his authority by aborting the struggling game company's long-running effort to break into the real-money gambling business.
Ko, a Yahoo Inc veteran, had been viewed within Zynga as a rising star who pushed a mobile-first strategy.
Cadir Lee, the chief technology officer, and Colleen McCreary, the chief people officer, will also leave, according to AllThingsD.
Zynga did not respond to a request seeking comment.
