As CEO of Raptr, Dennis oversees the company’s day-to-day operations and directs the evolution and ever-expanding features and functionality of Raptr and Plays.tv. Known as “Thresh” in gaming circles, Dennis was crowned the world champion of Doom, Doom 2, Quake and Quake 2, and was called “the Michael Jordan of video games” by the Wall Street Journal before turning 23.
Using the proceeds from his professional gaming dominance (including a Ferrari awarded to him by id Software co-founder John Carmack), Dennis founded his first successful startup, gamers.com.
He later co-founded Xfire (which was acquired in 2006 by Viacom subsidiary MTV Networks for more than $100 million in cash) and Lithium, a leading Social CRM platform provider used by numerous Fortune 100 companies and still privately held. In 2007 Dennis founded Raptr out of his love of PC gaming and his frustration with it not being as simple and easy to use as it could be.
In 2015, Raptr launched Plays.tv as an easy, fun way for gamers to share their favorite in-game moments.Dennis’s favorite games include League of Legends, Clash of Clans, and Scramble With Friends.
