Intema Solutions Inc. (OTC: ITMZF) (TSX-V: ITM) is pleased to announce the appointment of Ty Root as the new CEO of its HypeX.gg subsidiary. Mr. Root replaces Evan Ryer, who has stepped down as CEO to pursue his professional goals.
Ty Root is a strong leader, well versed in the games and media space, always quick to build talented teams that help create and produce engaging content and platforms, whether for video, web or digital publications. Before joining Intema and HypeX, Ty was Vice-President of Production and Delivery Operations for Subvrsive, a studio/agency specialized in conceptualizing and creating immersive VR, AR and web-based experiences for brands and media companies. Over his 15-year career, Ty has built a strong track record of successful partnerships with renowned players such as Samsung, WPP, Google, Lionsgate, Ford and Apple and secured creative alliances with Snapchat, Facebook and TikTok. Ty was also a key player in the success of IGN and Gamespot’s video strategy, and helped in the creation of the IGN Pro League, one of the first US-based esports leagues specializing in StarCraft.
“I am incredibly excited to have Ty take over the reins as HypeX’s new CEO,” said Evan Ryer, former CEO of HypeX.gg. “Ty brings to the table a long list of skills and veteran expertise that will enable Intema to propel HypeX into an entirely new league within the esports tournament space. This marks a new era in Intema’s path to greatness and I’m super excited to see what’s to come in 2022, it’s going to be big, I’m sure of it.”
“We are thrilled that Ty has agreed to join our team and we welcome him to the fold,” said Laurent Benezra, President and Chief Executive Officer of Intema. “Ty has extensive experience in all the areas we’re looking at to grow HypeX.gg’s business, including strong team management, content strategy and production and partnership-building. In his new role and as part of his growth strategy, Ty will work to revamp HypeX.gg’s user experience with a big site refresh by adding functionalities, increasing revenues through brand sponsorships and tournament providers, negotiating strategic alliances with game publishers to allow HypeX.gg to provide amazing stat aggregation for its user base, creating a new wagering system to allow players to compete with one another with safe and fast payouts, and making HypeX.gg a recognizable force in the esports space, further cementing Intema as the premiere player in iGaming and esports.”
