As Chiliz and Socios.com take crypto mainstream, we’ve welcomed five new team members to our Tech, Operations, Marketing and Creative Departments.
Joining us from the iGaming industry, Andrew, our new Global PR Manager, will be making sure that fans across the world get to know about us. “I’m absolutely buzzing to be working as Global PR Manager for a company that I wholeheartedly believe everyone is going to be talking about (I’ll certainly do my best to make sure that’s the case!),” Andrew says. A hugely passionate football fan, Andrew knows all about the highs and lows (mainly the lows) of being a fan, having supported Middlesbrough for as long as he can remember.
“That passion for football inspired my early career choices. Fresh out of University, I worked as a journalist for popular UK football website Teamtalk.com before bagging a job as a Press Officer with my beloved Middlesbrough,” Andrew said. He continued working in communications both in the UK and overseas, before spending eight years leading on content and latterly as Head of Communications for companies including Betfred and Lottoland, in both Gibraltar and Malta.
So what does Andrew do for fun? Among sports and keeping fit, he has an interesting party trick where he can put his left leg completely behind his head with very little effort. Andrew says “I’d wager that my left hip is the most flexible in the company. Not that I would want to put that to the test!”
Joining the Operations department, Chantelle is our Customer Operations Manager, responsible for ensuring a seamless customer journey, from handling queries to know-your-customer procedures and everything in between. Chantelle previously worked within the igaming industry, gaining extensive experience within customer support, including setting up the departments from scratch for a number of brands.
So what inspires Chantelle about Chiliz? “I’ve been following Chiliz for almost a year now and as an avid football fan, I was instantly drawn to the company and the concept of the product. I believe this is a great opportunity for me to combine my love of sports and my experience in Customer Support/Operations, whilst learning a new technology and being part of something new.” A passionate football fan and massive Manchester United supporter, Chantelle also loves to read in her free time. But does she have a party trick as good as Andrew’s? Perhaps not but admittedly she’s very good at languages after a glass of wine or two 😉
Also Joining the Operations Team, Dyrk, is our KYC/AML Officer. Dyrk was previously at Merkur Interactive Services – a german betting company and slots provider, where he managed a team of both RPF and KYC analysts. He loves being at the heart of a pioneering industry and innovative team here at Chiliz. “I sincerely believe this company is going to explode in 2020.” In his free time Dyrk is an avid free/scuba diver, loves travelling and poker though admittedly hasn’t done much of the two recently 🙂
Joining the Creative team as a Graphic Designer, Chretien joins Chiliz from Raketech, an affiliate company within the iGaming industry. Chretien loves the concept of Chiliz and the fact that the company is the first in the world to offer sports fans such a level of engagement with their clubs. “What inspires me most is actually the drive and passion I share with my fellow colleagues.” In his free time,. Chretien loves anything outdoors and adventurous.
Redeemer, a Frontend Developer, joins us from KPMG where he was doing Full Stack development, taking care of large projects related to the iGaming industries. “I love the working environment and how united the Chiliz team is.” He’s looking forward to learning new skills and growing along with Chiliz.
In his free time, Redeemer loves both business and development and building new games and innovative things to improve the world 🙂
