Telltale Games has appointed former Zynga SVP and GM of Games Pete Hawley as its new President and CEO.
He will officially take the role on September 18th, 2017. Current CEO and company co-founder Dan Connors will return to an advisory role.
Hawley joins following a three-year stint at Zynga. He has also previously been CEO of Red Robot Labs, Vice President of Product Development at CrowdStar, and has held roles at EA, Sony, and Lionhead Games.
A huge fan
"I am a huge fan of all Telltale Games and what they've achieved as a company in becoming the leading storytellers in gaming under the leadership of Dan and Kevin," said Hawley.
"I look forward to working closely with Telltale Games' talented team, industry leading IP and partners to drive new ways to bring players together in innovative and exciting game content. Telltale is unique, and I’m thrilled to be a part of its amazing future."
Telltale's former CEO Keven Bruner stepped down in March 2017 after two years in the role. Connors, who took his place in the interim period, was also a former CEO of the developer.
