EA has announced that the new CEO of the company will be Andrew Wilson and will fill the place left by John Riccitiello in March. Previously Executive VP of EA Sports, Wilson started at EA back in 2000 and has been through Australian, Asian, European and North American studios during his time at the Publisher.
On accepting the position Wilson released a statement saying “I envision EA as the World’s Greatest Games Company, this is not about what we are aiming for or what we will become. Rather, it is about an unfaltering commitment to what we will be every day. This is an attitude that must drive our culture as one team.
According to a SEC filing, Wilson will be paid a base salary of $800,000 with a target bonus salary of 150% in addition to stock options.
