Hubert Thieblot

CEO

As a teenager in France, Hubert Thieblot was an avid gamer, devoting much of his time to his World of Warcraft guild. He developed a website to host modifications to the game for his well-respected team, and soon discovered the site also became a powerful tool for players everywhere. The seed for Curse was planted. At only twenty, with no experience in engineering, web design, management, or business, Thieblot boldly decided to make Curse his career. Despite parental disapproval, he dropped out of his Swiss information technology program and dedicated himself to gaming and to growing his company. With no financial backers, it took many sleepless nights on the floors of friends’ houses and countless cups of Chinese noodles before Curse gained traction.
