WWE have parted ways with their Senior Vice President of Programming and Media Operations who has departed the company for a position at the video game giant, Electronic Arts.
Craig Tello, co-writer of Daniel Bryan’s hit autobiography ‘Yes: My Improbable Journey to the Main Event of WrestleMania’, officially listed September as his final month as a WWE employee with the company only recently announcing his exit.
For WWE, Tello first served as creative writer in 2005 before being promoted to Senior Vice President for his reliability and sterling work behind the scenes. In his new role, he was partly responsibly for making brand new content for the WWE Network.
After fifteen years with the company, Tello posted the following farewell message on his LinkedIn page:
Days left in this year of infamy and I’m focused not just on a new “chapter,” but a whole new “book” in 2021. I am elated to share that I have joined Electronic Arts (EA) as its new head of marcom & content strategy within competitive gaming.
Very, very grateful to be nestled within a senior leadership team filled to the brim with progressive, bright innovators. #newyear #esports #gaming #announcement
