Don Mattrick is Zynga’s Chief Executive Officer, focused on furthering the company’s mission of connecting the world through games. He is also a member of the Board of Directors. As an industry-leading executive in entertainment, games and consumer products, Don has established himself during a 30-year career as a world-class leader of game, platform and team development.

Don, 49, spent six years at Microsoft – the last three as president of the Interactive Entertainment Business. In that role, he was responsible for the team that grew Microsoft’s Xbox 360 global installed base by 700 percent to nearly 75 million consoles and Xbox Live membership from 6 million to nearly 50 million subscribers in 41 countries. During his six-year tenure at Microsoft, Don also oversaw businesses and services focused on consumer products that included PC and mobile interactive entertainment and the groundbreaking Kinect entertainment products – which was released in November 2010 and set a Guinness World Record for fastest-selling consumer electronic device in the first 60 days. Don is widely recognized for transforming the Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business from an operating loss into a sustained and profitable business.

Don also served as the president of Worldwide Studios at Electronic Arts. During his 15-year career at Electronic Arts, Don helped develop and scale the company’s leading global game franchises and brands including "Need for Speed," "FIFA" and "The Sims.” Previously, he oversaw EA's global studios and research and development in several major sites, including Redwood Shores, Calif. (Silicon Valley), Los Angeles, EA Tiburon in Florida, EA Canada in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Montreal, and EA U.K. in England. At age 17, Don founded his first company, Distinctive Software, which was acquired by Electronic Arts in 1991 and subsequently became EA Canada.

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.
