Andrew Wilson is the CEO of Electronic Arts, the second-largest video company in the Americas and Europe by market capitalization and revenue.
The Australian businessman started his career working for online media companies specializing in sports and entertainment content creation.
Wilson’s decades-long career with EA commenced in 2000, leading the EA studio in Seoul, South Korea and guiding the direct-to-consumer business before joining the EA SPORTS division. As an executive producer for EA’s FIFA franchise, Wilson grew it into one of the highest-earning video game franchises of all time.
Wilson’s success with the FIFA franchise pushed him to become EA SPORTS’ executive vice president in 2011 where he drove all aspects of business development. Two years later, he was also leading Origin, EA’s digital distribution platform, as well as EA’s digital PC service.
In 2013, following a difficult stretch of layoffs, criticism of game quality, and a plummeting share price, Electronic Arts’ CEO was forced out. The game publisher looked inward to their most successful business line for their next leader. Wilson was named as CEO that same year.
The 13-year EA veteran quickly made changes to spur the company’s momentum, including announcing a halt to college football video game production and cutting their longstanding ties with Tiger Woods.
Wilson cast a vision for the company’s future centered on three core areas: putting players first, driving digital transformation, and operating as one team. Under his leadership, EA launched innovative new games and services, achieved the highest level of player engagement amid its global franchises, and pivoted into one of the world’s foremost digital entertainment companies.
His prominent successes include shifting the company from brick and mortar game sales to digital transactions, expanding EA’s foothold in the mobile gaming industry and winning the exclusive right to produce Star Wars franchise-based video games, including hit title, Star Wars Battlefront.
He has been named one of the “Top People in Business” by Fortune, one of the “Most Creative People” by Fast Company, and one of the “100 Most Influential Leaders in Marketing, Media and Tech” by AdWeek.
Wilson lives in the Bay Area with his wife and two children, and he enjoys surfing, training Brazilian jiu-jitsu and playing video games.
