We’ve been growing rapidly over the past year, and we’re not about to stop now!

This is a major milestone for the team, and we’re delighted to announce our first executive hire and brand new Chief Operating Officer; Perry Smith.

Perry joins us from his previous role as Esports Business Director at Right Formula.

With a decade of esports experience held in senior management roles, Perry has led successful programmes across the world of esports, covering strategic consultancy, media rights, content distribution and event production. Bringing this wealth of traditional, agency experience, Perry will support the development of Hotdrop’s service offering to ensure that the company continues to innovate in the space.

“I’m thrilled to be joining Hotdrop at this stage of the business having witnessed their incredible upward trajectory over the past sixteen months.

Hotdrop has been working on exciting expansion plans, branching out in a variety of ways to ensure that we’re always offering best in class services to all of our partners.

I think it’s fair to say that we will be a business that sets the standard at not only a service and client level, but also in creating a company culture where people can thrive, learn and progress.” – Perry Smith, COO

Perry’s appointment reinforces Hotdrop’s commitment to investing in people. A key part of his role within the company will be to develop the growing roster of talent and foster an environment that promotes employee wellbeing and upskilling.

“The team and I couldn’t be more excited to bring Perry into a leadership role here at Hotdrop. Having known Perry for many years, it gives me every confidence that he is not only the right fit for our team, but will also join us in driving the vision for Hotdrop forward, reaching new heights on a global scale.” – Heather Dower, Founder and CEO

The whole team here at Hotdrop welcome Perry aboard and we can’t wait to see what we’ve achieved by this time next year!
