Mark pincus is removing himself from being the singular public face, relinquishing the role of ceo, but he will still be the chairman of the board and the development.

He cofounded his own videogame company at the age of 17. he eventually sold that to electronic arts, which allowed him to become president of worldwide studios at electronic arts and led to his career at microsoft.

He knows a lot about the videogame business.

He has the resume for the top job at zynga, but he has a tough job ahead of them.

Zynga is no longer the king of the hill when it comes to games on facebook.
