Electronic Arts appointed Blake Jorgensen to Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer today, replacing Eric Brown who resigned from the position in February.

Jorgensen will have responsibility for the company's global financial operations and will report directly to EA's CEO, John Riccitiello. He joins EA after holding the same post at Levi Strauss & Co. and, prior to that, Yahoo! Inc.

"We are very pleased to have an executive with Blake's experience joining our senior team at EA," said EA CEO John Riccitiello. "His deep understanding of finance and experience in online commerce and entertainment will be instrumental to EA's transformation into digital distribution of game content and services. 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.
