Pete Parsons (a.k.a. Mango) was the Studio Manager at Bungie 2002 - 2006, as well as the executive producer of Halo 2. Essentially, his job is to supervise the team and making sure that their job is smooth and nothing will happen to hinder them in the production of the Halo game.
Parsons, 38, left a senior marketing job at Microsoft to join the Halo crew as studio manager. He once said: "I'd been a Bungie fan for a long time. They're an incredibly talented group of people who don't accept second best. I like the bar being set so high that falling off would kill you."
He is currently working on a non-Halo project within Microsoft alongside Jeremiah, a.k.a. Ninja 0n Fire.
- He has never beaten Frankie at Halo 2.
- He drives a Ford Bronco.
- On Dec. 12 2010 he forces bungie employees in a meeting to watch the Justin Bieber movie trailer. (via @BungieTweets)
