Meteor Games, best known for its free-to-play social media titles on Facebook and other networks such as Island Paradise and Ranch Town, has named advertising veteran Zac Brandenberg their new CEO as of July 1st. Brandenberg will drive the direction of social gaming product sales in his new position, as well as manage the company's monetization strategy.
