Electronic Arts is restructuring its org chart, as CEO Andrew Wilson announced today Company restructured into two organizations – EA Sports and EA Entertainment – will report to him.
“This evolution of our company continues to give our studio leaders more creative ownership and financial responsibility to make faster, more informed decisions around development and go-to-market strategies,” Wilson said.
“These steps will accelerate our business, drive growth and deliver long-term value to our employees, our players and our communities.”
The reorganization also resulted in some changes in its top management, as CFO Chris Suh and chief experience officer Chris Bruzzo are leaving the company at the end of the month.
Suh decided to resign to pursue another opportunity, while Bruzzo is retiring, the publisher said.
“For the past nine years, Chris [Bruzzo] Led many innovative global player campaigns for EA’s largest franchises, establishing the company’s first commitment to positive play, inclusivity, and accessibility, making our games safer, fairer, and more accessible to all Fairer,” Wilson said.
“Through a strong commitment to leadership succession planning, Chris worked closely with David to prepare for this transition. I am extremely grateful for the lasting impact Chris has had on our business, people and culture.”
Wilson also thanked Suh and wished him well for the future. Suh’s replacement as chief financial officer will be Stuart Canfield, who has been with the company for 20 years, most recently as senior vice president of corporate finance and investor relations.
“With 20 years of experience in global finance, investor relations and operational leadership roles, Stewart brings extensive knowledge of our business and the broader gaming industry, as well as a proven track record of delivering results,” Wilson said of Canfield explain.
“As CFO of our global studio organization and EA Sports, he played a key role in the transformation of our company.”
The company’s new chief experience officer will be David Tinson, the company’s former chief marketing officer.
Laura Miele also saw her title shift today, as the company’s former chief operating officer is now president of EA’s entertainment, technology, and central development division.
