(PresseBox) ( Munich, )
Appointment of the experienced games industry entrepreneur emphasizes zeuz’s focus on delivering prime backend services and tech to game developers on a global scale.

zeuz, the innovative startup empowering multiplayer game developers with scalable backend services, announced today that Hendrik Lesser, CEO of remote control productions, has been appointed to its Board of Directors. The expansion of the zeuz board comes shortly after the Munich-based company announced that it raised €3 million in funding to grow its range of products for game developers around the globe.

"I'm incredibly excited and feel honored to join the zeuz board”, says Lesser. “Allowing game developers to primarily focus on their realm of creating great experiences for gamers is a mission we share professionally and personally.  At rcp, I have set up the team and services with the very same goal in mind.”

Lesser is CEO of remote control productions (rcp), the mothership of Europe’s biggest family of game development studios. In his 15 years since founding rcp, Lesser has grown the business to an international group of 13 independent studios in 5 countries with more than 130 shipped projects under its belt.

In parallel to his role as CEO at rcp, he has been serving as the President of the Board of the European Game Developer Federation (EGDF) since 2015 and has recently been re-elected for a term of two years. Lesser also engages in the educational sector as a chairholder for games production and is still involved in the development of games like Das Boot and Angry Birds Epic as Executive Producer.

"With his combined experience as games industry personality and his entrepreneurial background as a founder of multiple startups, Hendrik is very familiar with the opportunities in the market we are tackling. We’re really looking forward to connecting his wide and deep expertise with the instrumental support of our zeuz investors and writing the success story of zeuz together”, says Manuel Karg, zeuz’s Managing Director.

Founded a year ago, zeuz already has extensive experience in the game server business as the company has been spawned off by the world’s leading game server provider for consumers, GPORTAL, to additionally cater to game makers. The plan was sparked by Funcom, publisher of Conan Exiles, who relied on the company’s know-how to help them with the scalable multiplayer infrastructure their game was in need of.
