Meet the new CEO – Reto.JM

You are already devoted to the game and know every bit of it? Now we think it is time that you get to know the team a little better. So every once in a while we will introduce you to one of the people behind Heroes & Generals.

What’s the story of the tag?
When I tell people my name is Jean-Marc, after a while they tend to forget what came after the hyphen, and start calling me Jean-Pierre, Jean-Claude or anything French sounding. So just being JM is a lot easier.

What is your position and what does that mean?
I am the Chief Executive Officer, in short CEO.
My role is to listen more than I talk, to take some calculated risks by catching opportunities, but overall to make long term reaching decision that involve the players (as opposed to try and make a “quick buck”), and finally to demonstrate vision, passion, and drive to get our company further.

What was the best thing to work on so far?
Since I joined, I spent a lot of time meeting everyone and it was amazing. We have a very talented team, dedicated and passionate people who know their stuff. I can’t wait to work with everyone in the trenches to continue optimizing Heroes & Generals.

What are you excited about in the future?
We have a solid foundation with Heroes & Generals and it is only the beginning. I am excited to get closer to the players in the near future and understand better what they love the most about Heroes & Generals and what they think we could do better.

What did you do before Reto?
I worked in the game industry, longer than I would like to admit, for big and smaller companies, in different roles ranging from creative to production, business development and operations. The consistent theme in my career has been online services, from MMOs to Community Management, Backend Services, F2P games, and Episodic Content, on all platforms.

What is the best thing about working at Reto?
So far I have truly enjoyed the company of the team, they have been easy to get along with and very interesting to meet with, I have learned a lot already! I have to admit I also dig our rooftop terrasse which I have been using every time I could to catch some sun and the view of the Copenhagen cityscape, can’t complain!

What is your favourite thing about H&G?
Heroes & Generals is quite unique in that it features combined arms – not just tanks, or planes, or infantry, or strategy, but all in one game. And all in one grand persistent online war, where everything a player does in the game makes a difference. 

What are your hobbies?
I am playing games on all platforms, no specific genre, I just like to play good games. I also spend as much time as I can with family playing outdoors, building LEGO’s, going to the museum or the movies together.

Favourite Games/Games that inspired you to have a career in games?
I used my lunch money to play at the arcade when I was a kid. My favorite games were Mortal Combat, Gauntlet and Track & Field. I had my first computer when I was twelve, that’s when I started to invest a significant amount of time playing games like Castle Wolfenstein, the Ultima series, Karateka … 

What’s your favourite films, music, and books
I really liked Dunkirk. I went to see it with the entire team at Reto-Moto. I thought it was a visceral depiction of the reality of war.
I love all kind of musics, in particular and in no particular order, jazz, reggae, and contemporary classical music.
I have more books to read than I can get through, when I don’t read about the game Industry, my favorite books are dark fiction books (Harry Crews, Michael Ginzburg and others).

Random Fun Fact
I used to be a sculptor!
