Struggling mobile game developer Zynga announced that Chief Finance Officer David Lee has left the company. Chief Accounting Officer Michelle Quejado will serve as interim CFO as the company seeks a permanent replacement.
Zynga did not provide a reason for the abrupt departure. Lee joined the company in April 2014.
The mobile developer is most known for its FarmVille and Words With Friends franchises. Those franchises have not fared well in recent months.
The company recently announced a 27% year-over-year decline in average monthly active users — a key metric for the mobile gaming industry.
