Electronic Arts announced that Laura Miele will be appointed to EVP of Global Publishing at the beginning of the first quarter of their 2017 fiscal year. Miele has worked for the company for 20 years, and has held a variety of positions within EA across their publishing, marketing and analytics departments.
“When you meet Laura, you are immediately struck by her passion for games and her love of EA. She has played an integral role in developing the fabric of our company, and she has navigated challenges with great focus and leadership. She understands our DNA, is deeply connected to our values, and invests her energy in our people and their success.”
Miele expressed her excitement to take on her new role in the company.
“I have been fortunate in my 20 years at EA to be a part of delivering what I believe to be the highest form of entertainment to millions of people around the world all while working with the thousands of incredibly talented people who make up this company. I am honored to step into this new role and lead Global Publishing in a time of rapid change for the industry, when there is more opportunity than ever to deliver awesome experiences to players. I couldn’t imagine a more exciting challenge.”
Appointing Miele is just one of the changes happening at EA. Peter Moore, who spent four years as EA’s COO, will now become their full-time Chief Competition Officer. He will be working on new ways for players to connect and compete in their games.
