The move is in tune with its mission to help consumer brands genuinely engage the new generation of consumers for whom gaming is culturally fundamental and who can’t be reached through traditional media.
Heaven Media has appointed Daniel Chlebowczyk, a gaming PR and esports industry veteran, as the New Business Development Manager, ANZ. Daniel was previously Senior Account Manager for opragency servicing Xbox and Microsoft Store and Devices. Earlier, as Account Manager at Double Jump Communications, Daniel established its esports portfolio with PR, Community and esports services for Hi-Rez Studios plus PR and campaign support for a range of clients including Blizzard, Epic Game’s Fortnite, ESL’s IEM Sydney, HyperX, ASUS, Plantronics and more.

Heaven Media will begin providing ANZ localised service for its global clients, from PC builders, component, peripheral manufacturers and gaming publishers all utilising its global content and marketing team. This includes delivering content for digital spaces, social & community, Influencer sponsorship, events, PR and esports sponsorship management. Over time Heaven Media will develop additional opportunities in the ANZ region and build a local content team.
Mark Reed, Founder and Managing Director of Heaven Media, said “We see ANZ as pivotal to the expansion of our business. Many of our clients see the regions’ growth as key to their strategy, but need the local expertise with a company that they trust to deliver around the globe. Local staff are integral to this, combined with our knowledge of worldwide gaming and technology trends developed by working with leading clients in the space. We are so excited to be building up our team in Melbourne and across ANZ throughout 2019.”
