Founder & CEO
"Of all achievements in my career, I’m most proud of myself turning quite a few smokers into marathon runners in my team." As the founder and CEO of GAEA, Yann values teamwork, persistence, and competition. He is a runner and an outdoor sports fan, also a member of the Peking University basketball team. Before founding GAEA, Yann worked as the marketing director at Kalends Game and COO of Longtu Game. He holds a bachelor degree in Advertising from Peking University.
Co-founder & COO
“Our U.S. office is right next to the 49ers’ new stadium. We host e-Sports events in Korea. We have posters of our games in Bangkok’s subway stations. In Gaea, we speak and live global market daily.” A seasoned business traveler, Glevis rarely goes for more than a month without seeing an airport. His global journey started in North Carolina State University, where he got his MS degree in Electronic Engineering. He worked at Ebay and Supermicro in California, and was the VP at Lemongame HK limited before co-founding Gaea.
Co-founder & CTO
“Technology is not that complicated at all. You can be on top of all trends by holding on to the cornerstones of computer science and utilizing your analytical skills.” Wiki has built his career around the most cutting-edge technologies. When studying at Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications, his master thesis was on speech recognition. He also had experience in the field of mobile GPS navigation and cloud computing before he found his passion for mobile games. He is now leading Gaea’s engineering and research team by putting his expertise on data mining and machine learning to daily use.
Partner & CPO of Research and Development
“Creativity and originality are what we value the most. It is rare enough to be born with them, and even harder to keep them.” Leading Gaea’s game incubation business, Kun is constantly looking for producers just like himself – people who have a proven successful track record and an entrepreneurial spirit. After his graduation as a Bachelor of Engineering from Tsinghua University, Kun dropped out of his master program and joined Perfect World Entertainment Inc. to start his journey in the gaming industry. He has participated in multiple successful productions of different genres, among which MMORPGs are his greatest field of expertise.
Partner & President
"I still hang out and play games with friends I made in 1998 playing Quake 2. The first time I web chatted with someone from abroad was on Battle.net when playing StarCraft. I made my first friend in Japan by playing Winning Eleven with him. The connection I have built with real people via games is a significant part of my life." Now at Gaea, he collaborates with game creators worldwide to deliver better games. Before joining Gaea, An was one of the core team members at Microsoft to bring Xbox One to China. An holds a BS degree from Peking University, an MS from Waseda University and an MBA from Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College.
Partner & Secretary of the Board of Directors
"This team is full of energy and creativity. I used to dress up in suits for work, but now I am enjoying this upbeat, casual working atmosphere. Gaming has now become something that interlocks my work and my personal life." As the Secretary of the Board of Directors, Bin Liu, with nearly twenty years of experience in the Chinese capital market, has successfully led the Gaea Mobile team into the Chinese New Third Board with just six month of time. Raising 800,000,000 RMB, Bin has laid solid financial foundation for Gaea Mobile's strategic plans as it continues to grow.
Partner & CFO
"Before I became an accountant, I was a hard core gamer. As the CFO of Gaea Mobile, I was able to understand the daily operations by talking with the staffs who create and run our games from a gamer perspective. " Tao Li received his Bachelor’s degree from Fudan University, with years of experience in finance working at KPMG. He considers himself as a prudent accountant and a passionate gamer.
Partner & VP of Marketing
“It has been said I’m a stubborn person, with a borderline obsessive love of my hobbies. Games just happens to be one of my biggest hobbies of all. Here at Gaea I’ve been able to take that passion for gaming and turn it into something productive. I feel blessed to be working in an industry I love.” Sun Jian graduated from Peking University with a Master’s degree in Journalism and Communications. In addition to his years of experience in marketing, Sun Jian enjoys writing and directing screenplays. He has collaborated with the National Theatre Company of China on numerous productions, taking to the stage over 800 times. “It’s no different from my work at Gaea; I make things that I love and I share them, hoping that what I do can make other people as happy as it makes me.”
VP of Business
“Work is truly a wonderful thing, especially the different variety of tasks that I come across. There are internal goals, challenges and feedback. Being able to immerse myself in my work also gives me a chance to improve my cognitive ability. The end result is being able to solve problems while having fun at the same time.” Linda earned a master’s degree from Huazhong University of Science and Technology. Before joining Gaea, she garnered a lot of experience as a successful manager as well as setting up her first business. "In the second phase of my career, I chose to join Gaea. I look forward to working hard in this new industry and I have loved every minute of it so far.”
