LucasArts names Darrell Rodriguez as new president

Following the very sudden departure of LucasArts president Jim Ward two months ago, the company announced today that Electronic Arts LA's Chief Operating Officer, Darrel Rodriguez, will take the job in mid-April. Rodriguez is currently in charge of overall operations, product development and strategic growth at the EA studio. Prior to working at EA, Rodriguez was at EarthLink, Walt Disney Imagineering and Walt Disney Internet Group.
