Former Zynga Exec Joins Maveron

Andrew Trader, one of the early executives at San Francisco-based social game maker Zynga, has joined Seattle- and San Francisco-based venture capital firm Maveron as an entrepreneur in residence, according to a Maveron announcement released tonight. Trader will be based in the firm’s San Francisco office and “will explore new web-enabled consumer service opportunities,” the announcement said. When Trader stepped down as vice president of sales and business development at Zynga in March, he told TechCrunch via e-mail that he was leaving “to pursue other entrepreneurial opportunities and to spend more time with my family.”
