    Ampverse Announces String of New Hires

    Asia’s leading esports entertainment company, Ampverse, has today announced several new hires in order to bolster the company’s firepower, coinciding with growing client demand and Ampverse’s regional expansion to Vietnam and Myanmar.

    Ten new members joined Ampverse across multiple business units as its growth continues to accelerate across Southeast Asia, bringing the Ampverse team to 44 across the region. The latest hires added to the company’s scaling operations include Jackie Tangngumvitayakul, formerly at Starcom, Kate Siriwattanakul, formerly at GroupM, and Athiti Sujarit, formerly at Garena.

    Other additions to the Ampvese team include new team members across its sales, finance, human resources, creative solutions, and esports divisions.

    These latest hires follow the announcement of Tim Roemer last year who has since been promoted to Chief Operating Officer. Roemer joined from leading performance marketing agency Heroleads, a company he founded and scaled to 200 across the region.

    “We are really pleased to welcome this bunch of talented and bright individuals to Ampverse,” said CEO Ferdinand Gutierrez on the new hires. “As we prepare ourselves for the next phase of growth, I’m incredibly proud that Ampverse continues to attract talent of such high caliber. Reflected by their diverse interests, personalities, and knowledge, our new talent will support us in bringing forth wider creative solutions for our clients.”

    “Ampverse is focused on building the leading mobile esports organization across the region. This new string of hires will drive us to keep up with the ever-changing gaming landscape, setting us up for further growth and expansion to Vietnam and Myanmar starting in the coming months.”

    Ampverse Grows Year on Year

    For 2021, Ampverse will continue to invest in Southeast Asian markets, due to the rising popularity of the esports entertainment industry.

    “Vietnam and Myanmar are among Southeast Asia’s fastest-growing economies, with both markets displaying a huge growth potential for gaming, boasting many promising players and a robust gaming community,” said Gutierrez.

    “As we settle into 2021, our goal is to extend our resource, talent, and experiences in places where we know there is a clear demand.”

    Since its launch in 2019, Ampverse has grown into a leading mobile esports entertainment company in the region, recording a significant year-on-year revenue growth in 2020. Over the last six months, Ampverse now owns and operates three esports teams including Thailand’s leading esports team Bacon time, several popular gaming communities, and boasts a client base that includes Samsung, KFC, Porsche, Electronic Arts, Lazada, and Grab.
