Social gaming company Zynga has named Jeff Karp its chief marketing and revenue officer.

He “oversees all aspects of marketing at the company, is working to optimize and drive revenue with our game studios, and oversees international sales,” said Adam Isserlis, director of corporate communications at the company, via email.

Zynga's advertising products include in-game display ads, in-game sponsorships, and ads that run in its mobile apps. Companies that have advertised with Zynga include The Coca-Cola Co., Amazon.com, American Express Co. and Wal-Mart Stores.

Karp had previously served as EVP of EA Play, a division of gaming company Electronic Arts. EA named Karp chief revenue officer of its EA Games division in 2010.

Zynga filed to go public on July 1. In a regulatory filing, the company reported $235.4 million in first-quarter revenue, with advertising generating $13 million of that. Zynga earns the majority of its revenue from virtual goods purchased with Facebook Credits in its online games, such as FarmVille, CityVille and Words With Friends.

Game development site Develop reported August 10 that Karp had joined Zynga.
