Developer Biography

Having been a "gamer" for most of his life, Hank was formally introduced to the business of computer games in 1989, when he joined Spinnaker Software as the product manager for their Entertainment division. After three years of product management and group product management at Spinnaker, Hank joined Toshiba America Computer Systems, where he was regional sales manager for Toshiba's laptop division (yes, laptops). He returned to the game industry in 1993, as Director of New Product & Business Development for Interchange GameSpace, the Ziff-Davis/AT&T online, multi-player game service. Shortly after the Interchange service was sold to Nets, Inc. in 1996, Hank joined Restrac, Inc. as the General Manager of their Internet Division, where he launched and managed their Internet product line. When Adam Lesvesque and John Wheeler asked him to join in August of 1998 to run the business, he couldn't resist, much to his poor wife Kathy's chagrin -- she thought he was over that stuff. Hank received his BA from Bates College, and his MBA from the Boston College Graduate Management School.
