Hal Hanlin leaves Trion to join Zynga

Reports posted by Cupcakes

Another day passes and another Trion employee leaves to further his career elsewhere. Hal posted to his Facebook on Friday that he’s departed ways with Trion to work as a Lead Producer of Zynga–with his first day being today.

Rather than contribute to the masses penchant for doom and gloom, I will keep this very simple: Here’s a big good luck to Hal and his new career!

Huge step today. After 4 and a half years at Trion, I have moved on. As of Monday, I will be working as a Lead Producer at Zynga. This is a huge opportunity for me professionally, and I will be working closely with some good friends.

Nothing but love for Trion, but with the maturation of Rift, there was no urgent demand for my specific skillset.

Thanks and deep respect to the people I have shared this whitewater ride with. Now it’s time for some new horizons.
