EA gets a new CFO

Electronic Arts announced today that Blake Jorgensen will be the company's new chief financial officer, following the sudden departure of Eric Brown earlier this year. Jorgensen was formerly the CFO of Levi Strauss & Co. and Yahoo!.

"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," said EA CEO John Riccitiello about Jorgensen. "Beyond his experience and leadership profile, we think Blake is a great cultural fit for EA and the game industry."

The appointment comes less than a week after the EA board stated it had a "very high level of confidence in Riccitiello." EA will announce its first quarter earnings later today.
