Partner / Head of Creative & Strategy
Michael started as a die-hard videogame player when Pong originally came out. In parallel, he always had a passion for “real” machines, kicking-off his first career as a trainee at BMW which led to machine engineering studies at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg. From there he ventured into the realms of CAD CAM software design for architects together with his friend and fellow student Christian Lohr. Together they started Fishlabs Entertainment GmbH with the intention of becoming one of the leading developers of mobile and tablet gaming in the world. They succeeded, sold the company and Michael now spearheads our creative and strategic resource, ensuring our games maintain their innovative and pioneering successes.
Partner / Head of Production & Finance
Christian studied at the University of Hamburg Machine Construction Engineers, after which he and Michael started their first company. As with Michael, Christian’s love for precision engineering is prevalent throughout their entire mobile game portfolio and it is this pursuit of perfection which has brought Fishlabs its enviable reputation. Christian responsibilities within Proelios are probably the most important as it is his job to ensure that a clients’ brand game is developed to the required standards we set for ourselves, which are spectacularly high indeed.
