Entrepreneur Owen Van Natta has an impressive net worth of $400 million. He accumulated this net worth through the company he founded, Zynga. Zynga is a developer of online social games, such as FarmVille, CityVille, and more. These games are incredibly popular on Facebook, which is where the vast majority of players are first exposed to the games. In addition to Zynga, Van Natta has held high profile positions in other successful internet companies, such as Amazon, Project Playlist, Facebook, and MySpace. His most recent job was the task of revamping MySpace, which had grown stagnant and outdated in the wake of Facebook's massive popularity. Van Natta oversaw MySpace's transformation from a social networking site to a largely music based personalizable media site. The transition was considered to be largely successful, and although MySpace isn't the phenomenon it used to be, it is still a thriving and successful website. His most recent venture is Zynga, which has found much success in the relatively new field of online social networking games. Although Zynga has faced accusations of spamming and producing low quality content, no one can argue with the popularity of Facebook games such as FarmVille. Owen Van Natta clearly has a nose for successful online businesses.
Owen Van Natta is formerly the Executive Vice President of Business at Zynga, an internet company that makes online social games. He is responsible for the company's revenue strategy, corporate development, international expansion and brand. Prior to officially joining Zynga, he consulted for the company across a number of critical business functions. He is also a member of the Zynga Board of Directors. *He resigned from Zynga on November 17, 2011.
Van Natta has held notable positions in various media companies, including Amazon.com, Facebook, Project Playlist and Myspace. Van Natta holds a bachelor's degree in English from the University of California, Santa Cruz.
From June 1998 to August 2005, Van Natta was Vice President of Worldwide Business and Corporate Development at Amazon.com, where he managed global marketing programs and strategic partnerships. He was part of the founding team of A9.com, the Amazon.com search company, and was responsible for site operations and sponsored-link advertising.
Van Natta became the Chief Operating Officer at Facebook, where he focused on revenue operations, business development, and strategic partnerships from September 2005 to February 2008. At the time of his departure, his title was Chief Revenue Officer. He went on to serve as the Chief Executive Officer of Project Playlist in 2008, a music sharing website allowing users to search for music, create custom playlists, and share the content with friends.
In April 2009, Van Natta became Chief Executive Officer of MySpace, where he was responsible for all aspects of the company's strategic vision and the execution of its global business initiatives. Van Natta created new features as a part of his refocusing of strategy, and tried to move MySpace from a social networking platform to an entertainment content distribution platform. By the end of 2009, NewsCorp's Fox Interactive Media business posted revenue of $226 million and profits of $7 million, the vast majority of
