Germany – Bayes Esports strengthens management teamBy William - 9 September 2022
Bayes Esports is strengthening its management team with the addition of expertise from various industries.
The new management team around CEO Martin Dachselt and COO Amir Mirzaee consists of two lateral entrants from outside the esports industry as well as two longer-standing members of the Bayes Esports team who have signed new long term contracts to stay with the company.
Christopher Bohlmann recently joined as the Director of Growth & Finance. He spent over 10 years in the investment industry, primarily within the Technology Investment Banking (TMT) team at J.P. Morgan in their London and Frankfurt offices. Christopher also worked as an Investment Director for a family office, having advised companies and startups, as well as high-net-worth individuals.
Christopher stated: “I remember when I started my career at J.P. Morgan, around the time when payment startups were just emerging as a new dynamic force. As an advisor I was contemplating what it would be like to actively shape a business within an emerging environment.
“For me, Bayes and Esports are the culmination of exactly that. The opportunity to be at the forefront of an exciting industry, and shape its evolution through the leader in esports data analytics.”
Joining Bayes Esports as the new Senior Director of People Operations is André Schneider. He has 17 years of professional experience in the field of People & Culture, having previously worked for international companies such as IKEA and Red Bull; and having supported cross-functional teams at the Olympic Games in Sochi 2014 and Rio 2016.
Both are joining the management team, alongside its two longer-standing members of Bayes Esports; Dr. Susanne Ardisson as Head of Strategic Communications and Axel Fromberg as Senior Director of Sales.
Susanne has worked as a Senior PR Consultant for international companies for 15 years, including companies such as Readly and Delivery Hero. She is in the ongoing process of obtaining a professorship for Communication Management at the Fresenius University of Hamburg.
CEO Martin Dachselt said of the new arrivals: “With the recently announced expansion of Bayes Esports into the USA, as well as the upcoming launch of a new odds distribution platform, it’s excellent to see that the company has assembled the strongest possible management team to support and complement its ambitions.
“Our shared knowledge and expertise has been bolstered with the additions of Susanne and Axel, and we are also able to get a fresh and unique perspective from Andre and Christopher.”
