Gfinity has announced that they have brought former DreamHack CEO Robert Ohlen onto their team.
Ohlen will become Gfinity’s Creative Director and will be tasked with ensuring the company provides the best eSports events possible as well as growing the overall UK eSports scene.
Previous to joining Gfinity Ohlen was the CEO of DreamHack, one of the biggest eSports events in the world. During his time at the company the LAN events saw constant growth and became the biggest in the world.
Neville Upton, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Gfinity said this about Robert joining the team:
“This is tremendous news for Gfinity and Robert’s extensive knowledge and experience of eSports speaks for itself. When he took over DreamHack in 2006 it was a fledgling, sub cultural Swedish event and over the next seven years he transformed it into a mainstream eSports event that was and is still the envy of the eSports world. Robert is a grandee of eSports and is one of the industry’s most recognised personalities and we are delighted he has joined us at Gfinity”
Then the man himself, Robert Ohlen added this:
