Colin Slade, a former Telektronic executive, has been appointed the new chief financial officer for videogame publisher THQ.
He replaces Edward Zinser, who resigned from the post in November.
"Colin's strong financial leadership makes him a great asset to our executive team as we continue to execute on our strategies for long-term growth," said Brian Farrell, chief executive officer of THQ.
"His experience in driving financial efficiencies, leading corporate development efforts and optimizing capital structure combined with significant operational leadership will help drive THQ's future success."
Slade has previously served in an executive capacity for Graphic Software Systems and Price WaterhouseCoopers.
"THQ is a terrific company with a strong financial foundation and I am excited to play a part in driving the company's continued growth," he said.
