French-based esports representation agency Prodigy Agency has bolstered its team with the addition of five new agents.

Now amassing a total of 35 employees across nine countries and three regions, Prodigy will continue to work on its mission and motto of putting ‘#PlayersFirst’ heading into 2023.

Firstly, Lucas Mohamad, previously a Rainbow Six: Siege Team Manager for Immortals and Made in Brazil (MIBR), has been announced as Prodigy’s LATAM Coordinator and Agent. Based in Brazil, Mohamad will focus on expanding the agency’s presence within the region.

Ian Téllez has been named Rocket League Scout and Coordinator. Prodigy Agency already represents several Rocket League talents such as three-time Rocket League Championship Series (RLCS) winner Alexandre ‘Kaydop’ Courant, Robert ‘Comm’ Kyser and Axel ‘Vatira’ Touret, among others. With Téllez, the agency hopes to expand its presence in the competitive Rocket League space.

Anand ‘Curry’ Agarwal, formerly a League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) Assistant Coach for TSM FTX and FlyQuest, has been added as the agency’s NA League of Legends Agent. With years of experience in the LCS behind his back, Agarwal will help to represent the game’s veterans as well as its new generation of players.

In the FPS genre, Mateusz Zaczynski has been named as a CS:GO Scout and Coordinator. Prodigy already has significant involvement within the CS:GO scene, representing some of the title’s best athletes such as Mathieu ‘ZywOo’ Herbaut, Jonathan ‘EliGE’ Jablonowski and Mounira ‘GooseBreeder’ Dobie, to name a few. However, according to a release, the agency intends to continue looking for up-and-coming talents within the CS:GO ecosystem.
