EA has been without a CEO since the departure of John Riccitiello in March of this year.
Wilson stands to make $800,000 a year and bonuses that can possibly more than double his pay along with stock options.
This position was not handed to him. Andrew has been with the company since 2000. He brought attention to himself while he was the Executive Producer of the FIFA franchise. Most recently he served as the EA's Executive Vice President overseeing EA Sports as well as Orgin.
Wilson envisions "EA as the World's Greatest Games Company. This is not about what we are aiming for or what we will become. Rather, it is about an unfaltering commitment to what we will be everyday. This is an attitude that must drive our culture as one team".
