Tom Putzki (computer games / Germany)

The one-man band. Tom Putzki started his gamedev career by co-creating the cult game “Gothic” and one could stop there, but no… because for the last decade he was the European spokesman for Wargaming – the creator and publisher of the world hit “World of Tanks”.

In 2006, he founded Tom Putzki Consulting, where his team supports clients from the German and international gaming industry, but also companies from other fields.

He regularly speaks at conferences and trade fairs and lectures at many academies and universities.

Tom is also founding chairman of G.A.M.E. (German Game Developers Association), a proud member of the advisory board of Gamescom in Cologne and a jury member of the German Game Developer Award.

His services to the gaming world were recognized in 2017 by honoring Tom with an induction to the German Dev Days Hall of Fame and the German Developer Awards Hall of Fame.
