Luckbox recruits former PokerStars exec Martin

27 March 2018

Esports betting services operator Luckbox has appointed Quentin Martin as its new chief operating officer ahead of its planned launch later this year.

The company, operated by a team drawn from iGaming, esports and cryptocurrency, is concluding its Initial Coin Offering (ICO).

Martin, formerly the head of social poker at PokerStars, will spearhead a major scaling of Luckbox operations in the coming months.

He said: “As a scale-up COO, my role is incredibly flexible and tough to define - essentially, everything that isn’t product, marketing, or finance falls under my purview, one of which I’m honoured to undertake.

“I’m here to enhance the organisation and to make sure we stay on track operationally. The job description could most accurately be described as ‘get things done’!”

Isle of Man-based Luckbox has targeted a leading position in the esports betting sector, and wants to
help bring credibility and trustworthiness to the space.

Martin added: “The product-market fit is perfect - esports, esports betting and crypto are all just past their tipping points and primed for massive growth; a gamble easily worth taking.”
