In a blog post, EA CEO Andrew Wil­son shared some rea­son­ing for Jor­gensen’s depar­ture and some oth­er high-lev­el changes with­in the com­pa­ny’s management.

As our indus­try grows, this is the time for us to push our­selves to con­tin­ue inno­vat­ing, to evolve, and dri­ve trans­for­ma­tion for our play­ers. Our lead­er­ship team has been care­ful­ly eval­u­at­ing the oppor­tu­ni­ties ahead, and today we are shar­ing some con­text on key changes we will make as we move for­ward,” Wil­son said.

In regards to Miele’s pro­mo­tion to COO, Wil­son stat­ed, “There is no one that has deep­er trust and respect across our com­pa­ny than Lau­ra to lead this for us. Lau­ra suc­cess­ful­ly led EA Stu­dios with strong strate­gic and oper­a­tional dis­ci­pline, and she will bring that focus and rig­or to the entire com­pa­ny as COO.”

Wil­son addi­tion­al­ly con­firmed that EA mar­ket­ing boss Chris Bruz­zo is tak­ing over the Chief Expe­ri­ence Offi­cer role. Bruz­zo will  “build social ecosys­tems that forge stronger con­nec­tions and cre­ate amaz­ing play­er expe­ri­ences in and around our games.”

Here are some oth­er announce­ments about EA’s man­age­ment structure:

  • Mala Singh will con­tin­ue in her role as Chief Peo­ple Offi­cer, dri­ving how we build and sup­port our incred­i­ble teams.
  • Ken Moss will con­tin­ue as Chief Tech­nol­o­gy Offi­cer to pow­er our growth with con­tin­ued focus on our tech­nol­o­gy plat­form and services.
  • Jake Schatz will con­tin­ue as our Chief Legal Officer,guiding our evo­lu­tion as a com­pa­ny through a shift­ing legal and pub­lic pol­i­cy landscape.

I am proud to be part of this amaz­ing team at Elec­tron­ic Arts. I look for­ward to shar­ing new accom­plish­ments, and bring­ing great enter­tain­ment to even more play­ers around the world,” Wil­son said.
