Sebastian Goldt is the new CMO of InnoGames

InnoGames GmbH today announced the appointment of Sebastian Goldt as its new Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Goldt is being promoted from his previous position as Director of Growth and succeeds Felix Janzen, who will be taking on a new challenge outside the games industry. Goldt will be responsible for all marketing activities and will ensure that the developer and publisher of hits such as "Tribal Wars" and "Forge of Empires" continues to expand its position among the leading German games companies. Goldt will report directly to CEO and co-founder Hendrik Klindworth.

"Sebastian has been an important part of our team for over 12 years and has become a real pillar of our marketing department. His achievements in the development and implementation of future-proof tracking systems and his success in building effective teams in the areas of user acquisition and growth are particularly impressive. We are absolutely convinced that Sebastian is the perfect successor to Felix. We are very much looking forward to working with him to optimally market our 9 live games and the titles in our development pipeline," commented CEO and co-founder Hendrik Klindworth on the personnel decision.

Goldt added: "Felix and I have worked very closely together for a long time and achieved great results for InnoGames. I am therefore sad to see him go. At the same time, I am, of course, very excited about my new challenge and the trust that has been placed in me. The internal conditions for my start in the new position could hardly be better: We have an incredibly dedicated and experienced marketing team, very successful games on the market and promising titles in the pipeline. However, these tremendous assets are facing an increasingly challenging marketing environment. The key to success will be to continue to align marketing in such a way that player acquisition is ensured - and at a reasonable cost. This will be my focus for the foreseeable future."

Sebastian Goldt joined InnoGames in 2012. After successfully completing a Master of Science in Industrial Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Wedel, he initially took up a position as Project Manager Information Management at Hamburg-based RETC GmbH. About two years later, he moved to InnoGames as Product Marketing Manager, where he gradually worked his way up to become Head of Performance Ad Networks, Marketing Director Business Development & Performance Channels and - finally - Director of Growth. After less than a year, he was now promoted from this position to Chief Marketing Officer.
