Zynga Poaches Mobile Exec Sussman From Disney

September 12, 2011 | By Mike Rose




Adam Sussman, originally senior VP of publishing at Disney Interactive Studios, has left the company to join social games giant Zynga.

Sussman originally worked at Disney at the start of the millennium, overseeing business initiatives in digital entertainment for the company until 2005.

He then served two years as general manager at THQ, where he worked on product development, marketing, business development and strategy, before joining Electronic Arts' mobile division.

At the start of this year he rejoined Disney, where he has worked for seven months. This move to Zynga, as reported by PaidContent, will see him focusing on mobile content for the company.

Sussman is the latest in a string of big name industry veterans who have joined up with the FarmVille studio.

Last month, EA's Jeff Karp joined Zynga, while just months before, EA's chief operating officer John Schappert moved to the company to fill an executive post.
