Zynga adds Google exec to board, names Doerr lead independent director


Regina Dugan, currently the head of Google's Advanced Technology & Products (ATAP) R&D unit, has been added to Zynga's (ZNGA) board.

Among other things, ATAP is responsible for Google's Project Ara custom/modular phone initiative. Before joining Google, Dugan headed the DoD's DARPA R&D division.

Zynga also announces famed VC John Doerr (already on the board) has been named lead independent director. LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman and DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg left Zynga's board earlier this year.

ZNGA +1.3% AH.

    The economy is up, stock market is up, people are buying and selling everyday making profits, Z hires good people with great ideas, appears to have $3b in liquid cash, so why is ZNGA dropped 50% in value in a few months?

    Good question sir. I have read that their market share has also increased. It makes little sense. If the stock is being manipulated for profit, I haven't seen the volumes. I continue to hold shares (adding occasionally) because the reason I bought in the first place has not changed and if anything, has improved. I get the feeling I'll either wind up with a truck load of lead, or I'll be able to buy that small country I've always wanted....Rom

    @Rom - I just want to continue paying for the small rock in the middle of the ocean that I already own.
