General manager of Zynga Mobile's UK branch Matthew Wiggins has departed after a little over a year and a half with the company, Wiggins announced today on his personal blog.
"It's been quite a ride," Wiggins wrote. "I wish all the best for the good and talented people who I leave behind."
Wiggins's blog suggests that his departure from Zynga was without a new destination in mind, although he expresses excitement at having "left that chapter behind" to focus on new goals.
"The opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurism are even better now than they were then," he wrote. "And having learned so much from the journey I've just been on, I can't wait to use that knowledge to do new things in the future — and of course learn a whole load more."
Wiggins co-founded and served as CEO for mobile games developer Wonderland Software, which Zynga acquired in April 2011. The company is best known for its creation game Godfinger for iOS.
Wiggins is the latest in a string of Zynga executive departures this year. Last week vice president of business development Jonathan Flesher resigned, and the week prior chief financial officer Dave Wehner left to take a position at Facebook.
