Min-Liang Tan is the co-founder and CEO of Razer, where he directs and oversees the design and development of all Razer products. Mr. Tan was born in Singapore and resides in San Francisco. He graduated from the National University of Singapore Law School and was a lawyer before turning his passion for gaming into a 500-person global company.
Min-Liang Tan was recently elected to the board of the PC Gaming Alliance. In March 2012 he contributed $10,000 USD to the Wasteland 2 Kickstarter project, admitting it was to atone for pirating Wasteland when he was a child. (Wasteland designer and Interplay CEO Brian Fargo replied that Mr. Tan has more than made up for his piracy of the game.)
Min-Liang Tan has been named one of "The 25 Most Creative People in Tech" by the Business Insider together with Jonathan Ive and Gabe Newell. He has also been ranked one of the top 40 most powerful people in gaming by Kotaku in their "The Kotaku Power 40" list.
