Ben Malka joins Kairos Esports
Ben Malka has been appointed as account director for global esports marketing agency Kairos Esports. The addition of Ben to the team is a monumental step for the company, solidifying their position as the fastest growing esports agency in Europe.
Ben joined from Level99 where he oversaw the Vancouver Titans as Senior Account Manager. Prior to that, he had a history of managing high profile talent for esports and gaming brands such as HyperX where he supervised influencers for the EMEA market. In addition, Ben’s worked at Wavemaker and PHD Agency, with a substantial media agency background in performance and digital display.
Earlier this month, Kairos Group moved to their new London office in Shoreditch to accommodate their 60 person team. Ben will be working across the company, with responsibility on global accounts and activating high-level projects. He’ll be working closely alongside Drew Townley, CEO of Kairos Esports, and Chris Parnell, Head of Partnerships at Kairos Group.
Drew said “Ben joining Kairos Esports is a statement of our intent to obtain the best talent that we can get; whether that it will be here in London, New York or in our upcoming office in Los Angeles. Ben comes from a social creative background, so he’s perfect for Kairos Esports and enabling brands to enter the esports space.”
Ben commented “I’m really looking forward to the opportunity and challenge Kairos Esports will bring; to work with some of the largest clients in the esports and gaming space. I’m thrilled, and believe this partnership will be prosperous and rewarding both personally and for the company.
Kairos Group has grown rapidly since their foundation in 2015; the headcount now exceeding 60 employees across their London, New York and Los Angeles office.
