While at Yahoo, who just recently hired him, Barada guided the company along as it snapped up Citizen Sports, a fantasy sports company, and sold off Zimbra, a business-class software developer, to VMWare. While this is just another hire, it could fuel Zynga's already insatiable crave for more, or teach it some restraint and cut some fat, so to speak. Either way, Zynga's imperial strategy could change drastically with Barada at the helm, which could mean more or fewer releases from the company in the future. We've contacted Zynga for comment, stay tuned.
