The Hitbox Community Team: Kiubee

Suit up! It is time to introduce the next member of our global Community Team to you guys. Curtain up for: Tom aka Kiubee, our French Community Ambassador.

Tom aka Kiubee has started to work in the esports business at the early age of 17. He managed multiple challenger players and teams in the growing League of Legends scene, like Sparta and Punchline. During those days, his players and teams managed to secure multiple wins on French LAN events.

Kiubee is a true globetrotter, traveling to a multitude of events each year, expanding his network within the gaming and esports world.

During the Riot All Stars event, he learned about Hitbox for the first time and as he himself puts it: “I immediately fell in love with the platform!”
Once he got to meet our crew at some of the events he attended, this passion grew to include not just the platform, but the team behind it as well. This very passion and his extensive background within the scene made our choice to make him part of Hitbox an easy one.

In February of 2015 he joined our family and has ever since been an existential part in supporting our community, specifically the French part of it. One thing can’t be denied, he loves suits.

“I hope that the French community will play a major role in the future of Hitbox!” – kiubee
