Tainted Minds | A New Era

The past year has been a whirlwind for us here at Plantronics Tainted Minds. We have endured the highs and lows of what eSports has to offer while ticking off some incredible milestones along the way in such a short space of time. Today we enter the next exciting chapter in our evolution as a brand and look to further consolidate our stance in the Oceanic region. 

As such, we would like to officially welcome on board our new business partner, investor and advisor, Chris Chaney! A bit about Chris and his career;

  • Chris has spent the last 10 years successfully advising and building innovative businesses across the global sports and entertainment industry.

  • During his career, he has applied his strategy and business development expertise to help grow US and international companies by creating strategic partnerships, driving customer acquisition and securing expansion capital.

  • Chris is an award-winning serial entrepreneur, including being recognized in the Forbes 30 Under 30 list as one of today’s most impressive up and comers in sports.

  • He is also the founder of the Ivy Sports Symposium, which is widely regarded as one of the best business conferences in the global sports industry.

  • A native of Germany, he began his career in global marketing partnerships at the National Basketball Association, working with clients such as Anheuser-Busch InBev, Nike and The Coca-Cola Company, before launching an international sports marketing and consulting agency.

“We are extremely excited to be working alongside Chris moving forward as a brand and business. Chris’s credentials speak for themselves and what he has achieved in his career to date is nothing short of inspiring. When we set out on this journey to align with a new business partnership it was extremely important that the individual shared the same values, drive and vision as us here at Tainted Minds. Chris’s knowledge of not only business principles, strategic marketing, traditional sports and eSports made the decision on moving in this direction very easy. We look forward to building not only our brand but also growing the Oceanic region as well in 2017. Welcome Chris!”
