Beyond his experience and leadership profile, we think Blake is a great cultural fit for EA and the game industry."

The 52 year old executive will receive an annual base salary of $650,000 with a one-time bonus of $350,000 (minus applicable taxes) at the time of hire.

Jorgensen starts at EA in September.
