Zynga Names Don Mattrick Chief Executive Officer

Fortune Magazine named Don one of the "Smartest People in Tech 2011," highlighting his leadership in growing the Xbox business, including driving new consumer innovations such as Kinect. In May 2012, Don was named one of CNN Money's top 10 brilliant technology visionaries.

Raised in Vancouver, British Columbia, Mattrick is married with two children. In acknowledgement of his role in building the interactive entertainment business in Canada and the active development of industry links with the University of British Columbia, Mattrick received the UBC Award as an Honorary Fellow from the Sauder School of Business and was awarded the highest honor Simon Fraser University can bestow, the Doctor of Laws. He has served on several public and private boards, including the advisory board for USC School of Cinematic Arts.
