Strengthening the current team of creatives, developers and gaming industry professionals, we’re happy to announce the appointment of Emma Diskin as our Director of PR & Communications. A senior-level professional, Emma has almost 20 years experience in PR, corporate communications, social media and branded content across the entertainment, media and i-gaming sectors.
Alexandre Dreyfus, chiliZ’ CEO is happy about the acquisition to say the least, explaining that he is “…thrilled that Emma has joined our new blockchain esports venture. A veteran of the PR world, Emma has a wealth of experience in gaming and entertainment, and will lead the corporate and consumer communications for Mediarex Sports & Entertainment and the chiliZ Platform.”
Emma mirrors our enthusiasm, and is quick to point out that her own interests are squarely aligned with where the chiliZ project is headed:
“I have kept a close eye on the esports space for some time, and I truly believe that this is the future of entertainment. Competitive gaming is no longer just a hobby for a niche audience, but a booming industry that is relevant to myriad cultures and generations. In addition, to work at the forefront of emerging, disruptive and innovative technologies, such as blockchain, is a dream.” — Emma Diskin.
