InnoGames appoints additional Managing Directors

InnoGames, Germany's leading publisher and developer of online and mobile games, appoints two additional managing directors (German: Geschäftsführer) effective October 1, 2019: Armin Busen (Chief Product Officer) and Christian Pern (Chief Marketing Officer). Together with Hendrik Klindworth (Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder) and Michael Zillmer (Chief Operating Officer and Co-Founder), they continue their long-term cooperation as members of the management board, thus reinforcing the future strategy of the company. Busen has been a member of InnoGames’ management team since 2011, while Pern joined in 2013.
 
“We have been working together with this constellation for years. The appointments of Armin and Christian as managing directors are simply the next logical steps. Together with our teams, we have made sustainable progress for InnoGames and today we are one of the most successful companies in our segment. We look forward to many more years of collaboration and success as a team," states Klindworth. 
 
Through their responsibility on the product- and marketing- sides, Busen and Pern have contributed to the sustainable success of InnoGames. During this time, InnoGames transitioned from browser to mobile, which is now a major driver of growth. The strategy game Forge of Empires, launched in 2012, achieved a total lifetime revenue of EUR 500 million in June 2019 and is the only German game to become one of the most successful mobile games of 2018.
 
Armin Busen has been with InnoGames since April 2011. After initially taking care of finance and controlling as Chief Financial Officer, he has been responsible for InnoGames' product portfolio since March 2015.
 
Christian Pern joined the team as Chief Marketing Officer in November 2013. In addition to all marketing activities, Pern is also responsible for the company’s public relations.
