Bing Gordon

General Partner, Chief Product Officer, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers

It's hard to say whether Bing Gordon grew up with gaming or gaming grew up with Bing Gordon. After a youth spent ranging about--hitchhiking to every state besides, of course, Hawaii--he became a part of video game history with Electronic Arts in 1982. He grew with the gaming juggernaut, presiding as chief creative officer from 1998 to 2008, when he left to join Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, the mega VC firm that, fittingly enough, invested in EA back in '82. He leads KPCB ProductWorks, which helps entrepreneurs build successful products and services, and KPCB’s sFund, the investment initiative to fund that backs social apps and services. He serves on the board of directors of companies including Amazon, Klout, OUYA, and Zynga.
