Zynga’s CTO of infrastructure departs

Another high-ranking member of the Zynga team has left the company, as spotted by Forbes. This time it’s Allan Leinwand, who served as the developer’s CTO of infrastructure. Leinwand is now serving as VP and CTO of cloud service company ServiceNow.

Leinwand joined Zynga in April 2012 and his LinkedIn profile shows him departing this month. During this time period, he led a team “to leverage Zynga’s cloud computing infrastructure to be a competitive advantage in the marketplace and provide a new strategic line of business.”

A number of Zynga executives have left the company in the last month. After the departure of John Schappert in early August, then studio general manager Alan Patmore went over to Kixeye and CCO Mike Verdu started up his own company (which Zynga is investing in).

We’ve reached out to Zynga for comment, but haven’t heard back at the time of writing.
