Former Fnatic CEO, Wouter Sleijffers says he is excited to take up a new challenge as the CEO of Excel eSports after he was appointed by the UK based eSports organization alongside Robin McCammon who will be working as the Chief Commercial Officer.
Wouter Sleijffers had a successful stint with Fnatic after spending almost four years working with them as the CEO, while Robin spent over 20 years in the sports and lifestyle industries, 18 of which were spent at the sportswear brand Adidas.
Excel eSports says they signed the duo to help them become a globally recognised esports brand with its roots in Britain, and Wouter Sleijffers has revealed his excitement in taking up the challenge.
He said, “Excel Esports is the most beloved brand in UK esports, and I’m delighted to take up this new challenge of building the organisation into a household name on a global scale.
“My experience in helping to create one of the most established brands in the industry meant I recognised Excel’s extraordinary potential immediately, and I’m thrilled to be helping chart its course to become an international success,” he added.
On his appointment, Robin remarked that, “In Excel, the boldest British esports brand, I find a tremendous opportunity to leverage my experience in the sport and lifestyle world to build something truly new with the team that goes beyond what’s expected of an esports organisation.
“I’m delighted to join the fastest growing entertainment sector with such an immensely ambitious and disruptive company, and I very much look forward to getting my teeth into establishing Excel as a world leader in the esports space.”
