Eric Hautemont
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekjournal.php3?action=viewcom...


Eric Hautemont gives this mini-autobiography...
“Born playing "Risk" when it was still sub-titled 'La Conquete du Monde" and came with cool, oblong wooden armies, I grew up in the suburbs of Paris, France.

When, in early 1980, the first-ever Dungeons & Dragons club sprang upon French territory, a short ten-minute drive from my parents' house, I quickly started brushing up my then (some would argue still) non-existent English skills. Within a few years, I was on the streets of Paris, peddling home-grown D&D modules to the first hobby gaming stores I discovered, the now famous l'Oeuf Cube and Jeux Descartes.

In between two game nights, I somehow got a MS in Artificial Intelligence, flew to Silicon Valley where I raised money from the Rockefeller family and started a lucrative 3D software company, Ray Dream, later selling it to (and running) publicly-traded Fractal Design. Missing by a few months the opportunity to buy TSR (a good thing for D&D players, given the remarkable job of Peter Adkison, Ryan Dancey & al. did on 3e), I then erred into the no-fun but even more lucrative land of venture capital, running my own fund throughout the late 90s.

With two young, growing gamers at home, I finally realized the error of my ways ;-), and in late 2003 went back to my roots, launching Days of Wonder with several long-time friends. I've been gaming on ever since then!”

Guido Teuber
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekjournal.php3?action=viewcom...

"Guido Teuber (30) is both representative Licensor at Catan GmbH/LLC and shareholder of Mayfair Games, Inc. Originally from Germany, he moved to the US in 1997and is now a US permanent resident. After pursuing undergraduate and graduate studies in international affairs in New Orleans and Washington, DC, Guido decided to work full- time in the gaming industry.

As managing director of Catan GmbH/LLC, Guido works closely with Mayfair Games, Inc. on the promotion of the “The Settlers of Catan” line of games as well as other successful board and card game designs by his father, Klaus Teuber. Catan GmbH and Mayfair Games share a variety of common goals, which provide the groundwork for both firms to function well within a creative, cooperative, and comprehensive strategic vision. Ranging from rules editing to PR and marketing, Guido is collaborating on a daily basis with the Mayfair management team. At the beginning of this year he also started to join Mayfair more officially as the company’s PR Director.

Guido came over to the US in 1997 and is now a permanent resident. He has two siblings, one sister and one brother. His favorite Settlers game is "Cities and Knights", and he founded the Catan GmbH with his father in the summer of 2002. Personally, Guido would like to see German-style games to be as successful globally as they are in
Germany. Besides playing games, he enjoys spending time with his family, good food, hiking and keeping up with international affairs. Guido lives in the Bay Area with his wife Emily and son Liam."

Anye Sellers
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geekjournal.php3?action=viewcom...

"Anye has always been a gamer from the time her dad taught her to play chess when she was about three. She played everything from board games to RPGs to traditional card games and Magic: The Gathering when she was growing up and in college, but didn't discover German style games until her mid-twenties. More's the pity!

She studied geology in college and graduate school; but after a brief stint in the oil patch, she switched to web and software development about six years ago. This has afforded her a lot more geographic mobility, which was a necessity when she met her husband Mike. And then of course there is her 'other job'.

She started Dancing Eggplant Games (formerly known as Diet Evil Games) in late 2002 developing a board game that will not likely ever see the light of day. Her first release, FraudSquad (designed by her), came out in Feb. 2003, followed by Nobody But Us Chickens (Nunn) in Aug. 2003 and Employee of the Month (Moon/Weissblum) in June 2004. Although growing a game company on one's own without any external capital is a long and winding uphill battle, she’s been very blessed with all she’s learned and all the wonderful friends she’s made along the way, literally all over the world. She recently moved from Texas to the DC metro area where she plays with the fabulous DC Gamers."
