EA’s Rachel Franklin has been named to the 2015 “Women Worth Watching” list from Profiles in Diversity Journal. This annual award celebrates the achievements and personalities of leading women executives from a diverse set of industries and backgrounds. The winners were nominated by colleagues, peers and mentors for their initiatives and achievements.

Rachel currently serves as the Executive Producer on The Sims 4 and the General Manager of The Sims Studio at our headquarters in Redwood Shores. She holds a degree in applied mathematics and computer science from Carnegie Mellon University which she used to land her first job as a software engineer for a Department of Defense contractor. Since then, Rachel has combined her experience with her love of videogames and entertainment to build a successful career in the gaming industry.   

“My current role as GM & executive producer of The Sims 4 combines my passions for technology, entertainment, and gaming. While my experiences have not been conventional, they have prepared me for the role I enjoy today,” said Franklin. “Explore your disparate interests and passions. You’ll be surprised how much you can leverage seemingly non-relevant expertise in your career.”
