Zynga's Chief Marketing Officer leaves company after 13 months

Zynga's Chief Marketing Officer, Jeff Karp, is the latest executive to leave Zynga.

Zynga's Chief Marketing Officer, Jeff Karp, is the latest executive to leave the game developer.

Following the departure of a number of Zynga executives, with former Zynga Chief Technical Officer Allan Leinwand announcing his resignation yesterday, Karp is the most recent executive to leave the social game developer.

Zynga said in an issued statement:

Jeff Karp is leaving Zynga, and the groups in his organization have been realigned under appropriate existing divisions. Our marketing and revenue teams have always been industry leaders, and as we continue our transition toward mobile and multiplatform game creation and distribution, their continued execution will be key to our future success. We are grateful to Jeff for his contributions over the last year and wish him well in his future endeavors.

Karp joined Zynga in August 2011 after more than two and a half years at Electronic Arts where he was the Chief Revenue Officier before becoming the Executive Vice President of EA's Play Label.

Karp will continue to be employed by Zynga in a non-officer capacity, according to a filing with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission. He will remain with the company and offer transition services until September 22nd.
