Vexed Gaming today announces the appointment of Damien Andrews (Msc) to the role of Performance Coach across their competitive rosters.
Dedicated to optimising the physical and mental well being of its players, this role is the next phase in Vexed’s commitment to ensuring the best possible health of their players throughout their careers.
With over 8 years’ experience in the health and fitness industry, Damien has worked with Olympians, Paralympians and professional athletes from traditional sports.
“To be able to secure the unique talents of an individual such as Damien is a huge boost to us, not only as a boost to our well being programme, but as an indication of us as an organisation,” said Mark Weller, Chief Gaming Officer at Vexed. “With such credentials, working with any esports brand is a bold move, so to undertake such a move with us is a wonderful endorsement of us and our commitment to the health of our players.”
“I am thrilled to partner with Vexed Gaming to not only grow the UK esports scene but to do it in a way that promotes healthy practices and simultaneously helps change the assumptions around gamers,” commented Andrews. “The players are not a product but are individuals and they need be looked after accordingly. As Vexed Gaming’s performance coach, I have put in place a new performance strategy, tailored to their work and wider life, to ensure our player’s physical and mental well being is effectively looked after.”Back to all articles
