US publishing giant Electronic Arts has appointed Rachel Gonzalez to its board.

She has come to the games firm to serve on its board, effective immediately, and will also be serving on the company's Nominating and Governance Committee. Gonzalez is currently EVP and general counsel at Starbucks Coffee, a role she has had since 2018 when she left travel tech firm Sabre Corporation.

“I am thrilled to join the Electronic Arts Board of Directors," Gonzalez said.

'EA is entertaining hundreds of millions of people around the world through amazing content and experiences, and I respect their strong values to inspire positive impact through play. I look forward to joining them at this exciting time of expansion and growth in the industry.”

EA CEO Andrew Wilson added: “Rachel’s extensive leadership experience in the complexities of large-scale multinational business will be an invaluable addition to our Board of Directors. We’re looking forward to having Rachel’s unique voice on our Board as we accelerate our growth and drive innovation in service of our players.”
