To become CEO of a large video games company, you will have had to successfully develop the knowledge and skills applicable to running a profitable, balanced, complex software and services business. In many cases, a background in marketing, finance, legal or software/engineering career would be helpful. Certainly, I would include awesome math skills within the finance or software/engineering background.
Rather than offering a tutorial on the job of a CEO, I will offer some of the challenges in this industry.
Working with teams of creative video game software developers is a challenge. They normally want to constantly create as opposed to maintain and expand upon existing products. Creative software development contractors/employees can also be a challenge, especially should you be using development teams located in other countries. The architecture, development tools, testing protocols, integration, documentation and production are always a challenge. In addition, licensing can be tricky.
As CEO of a large video company you will need to balance global marketing, sales, engineering, production, finance, administration, distribution, legal, and a myriad of other complicating factors. In many cases large video gaming firms also have complex custom services capabilities.

Robert recommends the following next steps:

  • You may want to work with a smaller company, preferably a start up where you will be part of a small team that must learn all aspects of the video business to survive

Hi Carlos, of course being a CEO of a big company is something cool. in order to do so might be practical to take the ladder with no elevator :D. meaning that you should learn the steps and walk the talk not only dreaming. Video games industry is very rewarding so I might suggest joining programming field in order to make it happen. see you on the top friend :)
