EA appointed former McAfee CFO/COO Eric Brown as Chief Financial Officer and EVP, replacing Warren Jenson who resigned earlier this week but will stay on a few more weeks to transition his successor into the role.

"Eric's strong financial background, broad international experience and industry knowledge makes him a perfect fit for EA," said John Riccitiello, Chief Executive Officer. "Eric is a highly-regarded CFO, and we are looking forward to having him join our team."

"I am thrilled to return to EA where I can bring together my professional experience with my passion for the industry," said Mr. Brown. "It's a great opportunity to join EA at this pivotal time and support the company's growth initiatives in the years ahead."

Prior to McAfee, Mr. Brown served as President and Chief Financial Officer of MicroStrategy. Prior to that, he was the Chief Operating Officer of EA's Redwood Shores Studio. Earlier in his career, he held management positions at DataSage Inc. and the Haagen-Dazs Company, where he worked for several years in Europe and Asia.
