Mike Tinney

FIX: Fitness Interactive eXperience
CEO and Founder
Atlanta, Georgia
Games are in Mike Tinney’s DNA. His career began in game design (if not exactly the kind of games you think of today) with his first job being to run weekend-long murder mystery themed events at hotels and resorts in the Northeast prior to “the internet.” After his company was merged into White Wolf, a creative publishing house, Mike spent the next 13 years in a variety of roles that included game design, licensing, marketing and business development before ultimately being handed the reins as CEO to guide White Wolf’s transition from brick-and-mortar publishing house to North American subsidiary for CCP Games, an online game developer out of Reykjavik, Iceland. It was this acquisition that led to Mike being named President of CCP North America. Joining the global leadership team, Mike helped CCP to grow from maverick game developer to a multinational company, spinning up two new studios and projects in addition to the hugely successful “EVE Online,” growing to over 600 employees, and routinely working with budgets north of $50M.

In 2012, Mike stepped down from his position at CCP to put his talents in game design and business development to use in developing a new endeavor that brings together his passions for games, fitness and social interactivity. The result is FIX.

Competitive by nature, Mike looks for business opportunities that are emergent and/or disruptive. Mike enjoys new frontiers that test his experience and passions. This extends to Mike’s personal life as well, where he mixes just a dash of risk into his travel and adventures.
