Jeff Brown of EA said "most people" don't spend 3 years "obsessing" over a job they didn't get. Lasky was denied the top CEO spot in 2007.
Who did get the biggest, most comfy chair in the office then? John Riccitiello took over as CEO in 2007, with one Mitch Lasky passed over. “Mitch needs to try de-caf,” said communications head Jeff Brown, reports .
"It’s never easy being turned down for a job, but most people don’t spend three years obsessing about it. Since Mitch left EA, Apple invented the iPhone, Facebook evolved to include a gaming platform and EAMobile became the world leader.”
