May 29, 2012  |  All Things Digital


Game Closure , which is building a platform to make it easy for games to be played across multiple devices, said it has hired Laurent Desegur, Zynga’s CTO of mobile. Desegur will join the Mountain View, Calif., start-up as a VP of Mobile Engineering, in charge of the company’s game engine development. Before Zynga, Desegur was CTO at Big Fish Games, a major casual games company in Seattle. The departure of the mid-level executive from Zynga coincides with the expiration of the social game company’s lock-up period today, which will allow more of its investors and employees to sell their shares on the open market. The new shares forced Zynga’s shares down in afternoon trading, falling nearly 50 cents, or 7.2 percent, to trade at $6.14 a share, a new low.
