Newsbrief: It seems that there's a new Zynga resignation to report every single week at the moment. This particular week's departure from the social games giant is Jonathan Flesher, VP of business development, according to AllthingsD.

Flesher was in charge of securing a number of celebrity deals for the company, including in-game integrations of Lady Gaga and Snoop Dogg content. He also worked on numerous partnerships, including those with Yahoo, Google+ and MSN. Gamasutra has contacted Zynga to confirm.

Just last week, Zynga lost its CFO David Wehner. Before that, the company saw a dozen other executives leave within the space of two months, including COO John Schappert and general manager Alan Patmore.

Do you mean the Chief Tea Officer, the Vice President of Tea, or the head of its off-site tea studio?

Crash burn cinders. Such is the life cycle of Zynga.

Pretty sure the dude whose job could be summed up as "know and get to know rich and famous people" is not going to be one of the (ex-)employees crashing or burning here.

Hopefully they will finish crashing and burning soon so we can
start work on our newest game "Villeville" without the threat of trademark litigation.
