Electronic Arts has announced that Warren Jenson has resigned as the company's chief financial officer.

Jenson has served as CFO since joining EA in 2002. Prior to that, he served as senior vice president and chief financial officer at Amazon.com, which he joined in 1999 after a brief stint at Delta Air Lines. Jenson will stay with the company until the end of September to assist with its fiscal year-end closing and financial reporting process, as well as to help with his successor's transition.

"I want to thank Warren for the leadership he was provided in the past six years," said EA Chief Executive John Riccitiello. "He has built a first-class finance department and has been a contributor to our growth and strategic initiatives."

"My tenure at EA has provided me with many good friends and memories," Jenson commented. "It's time for me to write the next chapter in my career - and I wish EA the best in the dynamic period ahead."

Maybe now EA will stop caring quite as much about its wallet and more about the gamers.

I'm not certain how much effect a Chief Financial Officer has on that sort of activity. Isn't their job just to make more money, as opposed to, say, controlling product quality?
