Mike Morhaime Technical Entrepreneur of the Year

Posted 20 Nov 2012 by

DiabloWikiMike Morhaime has bagged himself a gong at the Ernst & Young National Entrepreneur Of The Year awards.

The awards encourage enterpreneurial activity and recognises leaders and visionaries who demonstrate innovation, financial success and personal commitment. Mike was recognised for his commitment to a high standard of quality that has propelled Blizzard to where they are today on the global playing field. Bryan Pearch, America’s Director of the awards had this to say:

“To use his words, Morhaime has unleashed his ‘inner geek,’ creating a cultural phenomenon that is unparalleled in the gaming industry. Morhaime brings a commitment to quality to his consumers and an inclusive work environment to his company, both of which have contributed to the immense success of Blizzard.”

And Mike this:

“We have some of the most successful online games in the world. Diablo III is actually going to be our 14th No. 1-selling game,” Morhaime says. “World of Warcraft has been the No. 1 massively multiplayer online game for seven years in a row.”

Congratulations to Mike. If you’re not familiar with Blizzard’s road to super stardom you can check out their official about page for history and mission statement.
