Second boss to leave studio in last week

Zynga is to hire another exec in the shape of Disney publishing chief Adam Sussman, a Disney spokesperson has confirmed.

Sussman’s reign at Disney Interactive lasted less than a year, according to a report on AllThingsDigital. He is reported to have joined the company in January, following a spell at EA Mobile.

He becomes the second exec to leave Disney Interactive in a matter of days. Last week, fellow Disney man Paul LaFontaine quit Playdom to become CEO of Habbo Hotel developer Sulake.

The move comes after Zynga has recently appointed former EA bosses Jeff Karp and John Schappert to its team.
