Zynga reboots management as CFO heads to Facebook
SAN FRANCISCO (AFP) - Struggling social games pioneer Zynga on Tuesday announced a shake-up of its management team as its chief financial officer left to take a job at Facebook.
Zynga CFO Dave Wehner has accepted a "senior position" at Facebook and will be replaced by Mark Vranesh, who had the job previously, according to a memo sent to Zynga workers by company chief Mark Pincus.
"Dave provided great leadership to our financial team over the past two years, helping guide the company's transition from startup through IPO," Mr Pincus said.
"He remains a good friend to us all and we wish him success in his next endeavor." Mr Pincus also replaced Zynga's chief operating and revenue officers along with the president of games at the San Francisco-based firm that rose to stardom with Facebook games but has been struggling to find a winning formula for profit.
