Seattle’s Big Fish Games didn’t have to cast far for a new chief financial officer.
The casual games giant hired David Stephenson from Amazon.com, where he was VP for the company’s North American retail division.
Big Fish’s previous CFO, Mike Vernon, left in May for Zulily, a daily deals site focused on kids and maternity products. He was hired at Big Fish in October 2009.
The release didn’t drop any hints about whether Stephenson’s going to help Big Fish sell or go public.
“His demonstrated track record of leading operational finance teams focused on large and complex consumer markets aligns incredibly well with our business and our plans for extending our operations, brand and product offerings across multiple platforms and geographies,” Chief Executive Jeremy Lewis said in the release.
