Zynga have been losing employees left and right, but it looks like the FarmVille maker has just promoted from within for the position of Chief Creative Officer. Tim LeTourneau is the new man in the CCO chair, leaving his position as Vice President of Games in charge of FarmVille 2.
He was in charge of overseeing their most successful game launch ever, FarmVille 2, over the last couple of months. In his new role, he'll be away from the day-to-day job operations of FarmVille 2, and will spend more time on game design across the whole Zynga board. LeTourneau will report to the President of Games, Steve Chiang, with Maureen Fan becoming FarmVille 2's new general manager.
LeTourneau joined Zynga from EA a little under two years ago, after working with EA since 1990. During his 20 years at EA, he spent most of his time within the Sims franchise - so you can see why he's a fitting choice for the super-addictive FarmVille franchise.
