Videogame Maker Promotes Laura Milley to Head Its Operations and Will Search for a New CFO
Mr. Jorgensen has served as EA’s Head of Finance since September 2012 and as Head of Operations since April 2018. Prior to joining the videogame company, he was the head of finance at Levi Strauss & Company and Yahoo Inc.
Ms. Milley was named chief studio officer at EA in 2018 and previously held other positions at the Redwood City, California-based company, including executive vice president of global publishing, and worked with Walt Disney as EA’s chief studio officer. Partnership was also led. Co.
and Lucasfilm Ltd. for content and games within the Star Wars brand.
EA said it would immediately begin the search for a new CFO and that Mr. Jorgensen will help with that effort and with the newcomer’s transition to the company.
EA along with its peers has benefited from the pandemic lockdown. Last year, the company recorded the strongest June quarter sales in its 38-year history. But the health crisis has also hampered EA’s production flow. The launch of its next big release, “Battlefield 2042,” was recently delayed by a month for the holiday season, citing the challenges of working from home.
EA also named Chris Bruzzo, who is currently the company’s Executive Vice President, Marketing, Commercial and Positive Play, as Chief Experience Officer, tasked with building the social ecosystem at EA Games.
EA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
