Interim EA CEO Larry Probst earning $1.03 million

EA investor documents reveal Larry Probst is to receive a $1.03 million salary while acting as CEO in the wake of John Riccitiello's resignation last month. An additional bonus will be considered at the end of his term as interim CEO.

Probst has experience as CEO, having held the position at EA from 1991 until 2007, after which he was succeeded by John Riccitiello. March 30 was Riccitiello's last day at Electronic Arts and the publisher has already initiated a hunt for his successor, of which the company is considering both internal and external candidates.
