For the past five months, Electronic Arts has been operating without a permanent top finance executive, after Eric Brown suddenly resigned. Today, the game company has hired Blake Jorgensen as its full-time EVP and CFO. Jorgensen joins most recently from Levi Strauss & Co.; prior to that, he was CFO at Yahoo until early 2009, when he left as part of a management reorganization by CEO Carol Bartz.
