Lucy Bradshaw, senior vice president of Maxis, has left the company after 23 years.
“Lucy has brought an incredible passion for games and our player community,” Andrew Wilson, CEO of Maxis parent company Electronic Arts, wrote in a blog post. “I want to thank Lucy for her dedication to EA, her contributions to Maxis, and the creative spirit she infused in every one of her teams and projects. We wish her the best as she takes on her next adventure.”
“I have the highest regard for EA’s leadership today, their vision and their focus on putting players first” Bradshaw said in a statement (via Polygon). “I leave knowing that Maxis is in great hands with a leader and teams who are full of respect for our players, passion for our games, and new ideas to bring to the world of Maxis gamers. I look forward to seeing what’s next from these incredible teams, I’ll certainly be playing.”
Taking Bradshaw’s place is Rachel Franklin, former head of EA’s Sims Studio.
Bradshaw joined Maxis in 1997 and was promoted to senior vice president from general manager in June of 2013. Prior to EA, she worked at both LucasArts and Activision.
