Trader has left the FarmVille, ladies and gentlemen. Cofounder of Zynga Andrew Trader has left the company to pursue other ventures and to spend more time with family. According to TechCrunch, this does not effect any of the other existing cofounders currently with Zynga.
Zynga only had good things to say about Trader, stating, “Andrew Trader and Zynga have parted ways. He made an awesome contribution. We need to continue scaling the company.” I’m sure that whatever Andrew decides to do next will be interesting to see. Whether it will be another aspect of social gaming is yet to be seen.
