DeKay Becomes an Agent at ULTI Agency
It is with great pride we announce a new esports agent at ULTI Agency. Give a warm welcome to Jarek "DeKay" Lewis.
Jarek "DeKay" Lewis has since early 2016 been one of the most respected esports journalists in the industry, working for companies such as Slingshot, VPEsports, Dexerto and DBLTAP.
He has been nominated for "Esports Journalist of the Year" by the Esports Awards for three consecutive years and has a high standing in the world of Esports.
From today on, we can proudly share with you that he will be working as an Esport agent at ULTI Agency.
DeKay will be based in Seattle, where he will be working to fortify ULTI Agency's position in both the CS: GO and Valorant scene worldwide.
CEO of ULTI Agency, Asgeir Kvalvik, says this is a perfect match for the company, and that it is a proud moment for the Norwegian agency:
"I have read Jarek's articles for years, and he has always impressed me with the way he conveys his knowledge in and around the scene. When I started ULTI last summer, it was because I knew we could make a difference for the players out there. With Jarek now joining the company, I am more confident than ever that we can bring the best offer out there to professional esport athletes.
We strive to be a transparent esports agency with a hard-working and humble attitude in everything we do. Jarek shares this value, and for us he is the perfect match. I can't wait to start working with him, and we are proud to have him on board.
Jarek "DeKay" Lewis speaks about his passion for helping players, and that that he is grateful for the opportunity that lies ahead:
"I am thrilled and honoured to join ULTI Agency on the heels of an incredible run in the world of journalism as a professional Esports player agent. Helping players is a passion I developed over the past five years in professional CS:GO and there is no better place to begin my journey.
Despite having other opportunities and the willingness to start my own agency, pairing with ULTI was not a difficult decision to make. They share the same morals as I do about how to operate an agency and we will help players maximize their market value by combining our vast skillsets. ULTI’s progress thus far throughout their short time in the industry inspires me and shows just how committed they are to making a real change.
I was thrilled to learn that ULTI does not bill players for their services, allowing for a much healthier working relationship between all parties involved. It is my hope that we can use the vast network I have built to facilitate transitions and ensure our clients are properly compensated. I’m grateful for the opportunity that lies ahead and can’t wait for the challenge that will most certainly present itself."
