SINGAPORE – Esports entertainment company Ampverse today announced the appointment of Tim Roemer as Director of Operations. In his role, Roemer will support the growth of Ampverse as the company is set to scale across Southeast Asia.
Video gaming is a cultural marker, especially in Asia, with the entire industry predicted to grow to US$6.9billion by 2026, and the Asia-Pacific region accounting for over 51% of gaming enthusiasts.
Gaming communities, largely made up of Gen-Z audiences, hold the power to create seismic cultural shifts. With that belief, Ampverse creates and celebrates gaming communities across Southeast Asia.
Ampverse works with brands to drive awareness, engagement, consideration and purchase among Gen-Z audiences, through the Ampverse ecosystem that includes a suite of owned-and-operated esports teams, gaming channels, original content programming, publishing assets and merchandise.
As Director of Operations at Ampverse, Roemer’s role is largely to implement efficient organisational processes to support the company’s expansion. He will also work closely with the C-suite team to analyse growth and acquisition opportunities across esports, content and product divisions.
Roemer boasts a strong entrepreneurial background, having successfully founded ventures including performance marketing company, Heroleads, which he grew and scaled to over 200 people in five years.
Commenting on his appointment, Roemer said, “Ampverse consistently remains one step ahead of the curve and I’m thrilled to be a part of this high-performing company. The video gaming industry, while still nascent in Southeast Asia, is displaying remarkable potential with vast opportunities for growth. Helping to scale the business across the region is a challenge I’m truly looking forward to taking, with the added benefit of working alongside a talented, high-calibre team.”
Ferdinand Gutierrez, Co-Founder and CEO at Ampverse added, “We established Ampverse based on the belief that hyperlocal communities have the power to drive change. Everyone in our team is a specialist in their own right, bringing together strengths and knowledge from their unique backgrounds to drive these gaming communities.
The appointment of Tim is a testament to Ampverse’s accelerated growth and reflects our commitment to hire the best, enabling us to continue to deliver innovative gaming-centric campaigns that help brands maintain their competitive edge and connect with Gen-Zs.”
