Meet Luke: Now Full-Time at GankStars
Previously at Hydreon, the company behind one of the largest Minecraft servers, Luke just quit his full-time job in order to dedicated himself fully to GankStars. Just like the rest of us, he's making a bet on the future of the company and esports in general. He's actually been with us since March as a part-time member; however, a few weeks ago he sent our CEO this message: "It's now or never. I'm in."
An avid gamer and a marketing professional, Luke has signed some of the largest deals in 3rd party gaming server history. While at Hydreon Corporation, he executed business development programs for Lifeboat Network. This included everything from event coordination, game design, and social promotions to partner relations, sales, and project management.
Now, he’s looking forward to returning to his roots in esports and driving GankStars’ aggressive expansion as we look to make our mark on the esports industry. Luke is joining us as our Director of Marketing. It was easy to sell him on it. For every deal he signs, he gets a gift card to a massage parlor. For every deal he misses... he gets sniped on stream? We don't know, actually - we haven't thought it through that far. But it will be gory.
Welcome, Luke!! Find him on Twitter under @TheLukeHoffman.
