Additional Quotes for Media Use

"Don Mattrick joining Zynga as its CEO is a spectacular coup for the company, its shareholders and for Mark. There is not another executive in the world who could bring as much experience, knowledge and success in the gaming space. This is an incredible vote of confidence in the future prospects for Zynga. With Don as CEO, Mark will be free to focus his time developing transformative products for players." –Jeffrey Katzenberg, Member of the Zynga Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer and Director of DreamWorks Animation SKG.

"As a founder, I know from experience that the right successor has the potential to massively accelerate the growth of a company. Don Mattrick's strong track record demonstrates that he can balance big picture vision with world-class execution. His skills are highly complementary to Mark, and I look forward to seeing their partnership in action." – Reid Hoffman, Member of the Zynga Board of Directors and Executive Chairman and Co-Founder of LinkedIn Corporation.

"Don is an incredibly talented leader who plays to win. He is someone who's constantly attracting great talent and coaching teams towards success. I've long admired the rigor and passion he brings to an industry that he, frankly, helped create. Don loves games and gives developers the freedom they need to surprise and delight players; but he also knows better than anyone that an innovative games company is a demanding and complex enterprise. Few people are up to that; Don is." –Bing Gordon, Member of the Zynga Board of Directors and General Partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.
