Esports veteran Drew Holt-Kentwell has launched a new global esports agency named FTW Talent.
Holt-Kentwell, who is a former competitive player and previously head of global esports at Razer, has launched the company with legal specialist Roger Quiles.
The agency already has a roster of over 25 players, coaches, content creators and influencers operating across a number of different games.
“We’re excited to pioneer the way esports influencers extract maximum value from their careers, as well as connect brands with the right esports players and influencers to reach their desired target audience,” Holt-Kentwell stated.
“FTW Talent is fantastically equipped to give our clients career management through extensive experience, a diverse industry network, and the access to opportunities around the world. We welcome developing and accomplished clients alike, anywhere in the world.”
Quiles added: “The exponential growth of esports in recent years has created a burgeoning pool of young, aspiring players, coaches, and content creators who lack the time or know-how to legally protect themselves, seek out endorsements or licensed deals, negotiate their own contracts, or negotiate employment terms with prospective teams.
“We pride ourselves on offering the most comprehensive services for esports talent out there and will bring unparalleled support to those who want to enhance their careers with carefully planned strategy in a sustainable, realistic fashion.”
