Don Mattrick Leaving Microsoft

Insiders at Microsoft say Don Mattrick, president of the Xbox division at Microsoft, is leaving the company to possibly take the top position at Zynga.

Zynga is the beleaguered online social gaming company that was founded by Mark Pincus in 2007 but has suffered problems with scam ads, spam issues, and insider trading indictments.

Adding Don to the Zynga roster would be a huge move since Zynga has been beset by problems ever since it went public in 2011.  Mattrick, could very well become the CEO of Zynga since he has experience with turnarounds and is well qualified for the role.

Mattrick’s move is almost certainly related to Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer’s plans to restructure his executive team during the month of July.

Update!

It’s official, in a blog post on Zynga’s site, Don Mattrick announced that he is the CEO of Zynga now.
