Spinale will run the social game business, which includes Disney's Playdom division, and report to John Pleasants, co-president of Disney's game division. Spinale will be based in Disney's Palo Alto, Calif. office.
Spinale will assume strategic and day-to-day management responsibilities at Playdom that were previously handled by Pleasants, who was chief executive of Playdom before Disney acquired it for $763.2 million in July of last year.
