On joining Dexerto, Hatrick said, “After almost two years at JOE, it was clear to me that Esports, Gaming and Entertainment were areas where lots of brands were gravitating towards. The guys at Dexerto demonstrated incredible knowledge and passion, which explains why Dexerto is growing so rapidly, especially at a time where a lot of businesses are moving in the opposite direction. I am very excited to help build out the commercial proposition for Dexerto.”

Joshua Nino De Guzman, co-founder and CEO at Dexerto added, “Matt comes to Dexerto with a wealth of experience in Brand Agency partnerships and will help expand our already substantial offering. Dexerto is enjoying a record year, both in terms of volume of traffic and commercially, and Matt represents the expansion of our sales strategy, enabling more non-endemic clients to reach our audience through exciting campaigns that offer great value to our fans and partners alike. 2020 will be another landmark year for Dexerto and we expect Matt to play a huge part in that.”
