UK esports organisation Rix.GG has announces the expansion of its senior leadership team with a new chief operating officer: Jan ‘Careion’ Hoffmann. 

Jan has come to Rix.GG in order to improve and streamline the operational side of the business, driving the organisation closer to its 2021 goals.

Jan was previously the head of team operations at Fnatic and has worked as a player and coach in the past.

Jamie Lewis, Rix.gg founder, said: “Jan’s story is a great example of how esports players can find relevant careers off the server once they’ve hung up their professional gaming boots.”

“I am incredibly excited to announce that I have taken the position of COO at RixGG. During the past few weeks, the RixGG Team has shown me nothing but professionalism and passion in our early conversations.”
