New York Times EVP of digital products Denise Warren has joined EA’s board of directors.

In her new role, Warren said she will look to help the publisher expand its product range to mobile and tablet. She has also been appointed to EA’s Audit Committee.

Board director Gregory Maffei meanwhile is set to leave his post on the EA board after ten years, and will not stand for re-election on July 31st.

Maffei cited commitments to TV entertainment distributor Liberty Media, where he holds the role of CEO, as the reason for his departure.

"Denise Warren brings an enormous amount of digital media experience to EA's Board of Directors," said EA executive chairman Larry Probst.

"We look forward to the leadership and perspective that she will provide to our company. I would also like to thank Greg Maffei for his many years of dedicated service to our Board. His guidance, involvement and expertise have been invaluable."

Warren added: "EA is transforming its business by extending the consumer relationship with digitally delivered high-quality products and services. I'm impressed with the management of the company and look forward to helping them extend their products to a broader audience on new platforms including mobile and tablets."
