Zynga loses another exec

Wilson Kriegel, former chief revenue officer of Omgpop, departs

Zynga has said goodbye to another member of its management team in Wilson Kriegel, who until recently focused on advertising monetisation and business development at Zynga Mobile.

GamesBeat reported the exit of the employee who joined Zynga in March 2012 as part of the acquisition of Draw Something developer Omgpop. He joined Omgpop in March 2010 as chief revenue officer.

There has been a wave of high profile departures from the social gaming company in recent months, inlcuding COO John Schappert, CMO John Karp, CCO Mike Verdu, and a number of general managers.

Kriegel has not yet revealed his plans for the future.

At what point does a "wave of high profile departures" become "executive-level mutiny"?

Hugo Trepanier Game Designer, Behaviour Interactive5 years ago should consider having a weekly column to list all Zynga departures! I'd like to hear about the "little guys" moving about... surely there are not just execs leaving?

If execs at my company were all leaving like that, I'd make sure I have an up-to-date resume online :)
