Esports talent agency Prodigy Agency has appointed Guilhem Causse as its Head of Sales and Partnerships.
In his new role, Causse will look to create commercial opportunities for players represented by the agency.
Prior to joining Prodigy Agency, Causse spent two years spearheading the strategic growth of Infront Group‘s digital entity, where he collaborated with a number of brands including NASCAR and Activision Blizzard.
Causse commented on his new role in a release: “I am really glad to join a dynamic startup such as Prodigy Agency, the #PlayersFirst mindset is really something which is driving all the people involved in this company. I am really looking forward to set-up long-lasting relationships through strategic partnerships between our portfolio of professional players & rights holders/brands.”
This is the second appointment Prodigy Agency has made in 2021. In April, the agency appointed Jordan Savelli as its FPS agent in a bid to recruit CS:GO and VALORANT players to its roster.
Jérôme Coupez, Founder and CEO of Prodigy Agency, also spoke on the appointment: “Representing some of the very best and most known esports players in the world, I’m proud to build a world-class team to pave the way and drive premium collaborations and sponsorships, and to welcome such a seasoned expert as Guillhem to spearhead our commercial initiatives.”
Esports Insider says: Since its launch, Prodigy Agency has built a roster of players featuring some of the most recognisable names in the industry. With Guilhem Causse as Head of Sales and Partnerships, the number of commercial opportunities for the players is likely to increase.
