Brett’s academic background is in mathematics and finance, but he’s been in the games industry since 2006 in a variety of roles, from strategy / BD to development management and operations. He joined GarageGames when it was just a couple dozen people. It later grew to well over 100 employees, and sold a majority stake to IAC. He joined Unity at a similarly early stage, and grew the company’s valuation more than 600% in less than 2 years, raising $12M from several firms, including Sequoia Capital, to fuel new growth initiatives.
Brett earned his Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Math at the University of Oregon and did graduate level in Math, Political Science, and Economics from 1999 to 2005.
