Esports agency AFK Pros today announced that Daniel “Frod” Montaner has transitioned from being a client of the agency to its latest member of staff. The move, made effective last week, sees Frod take up the role of an Esports Talent Coordinator.
Best known for his time as a professional player, Frod won several major international competitions in Counter-Strike and is considered by many to be one of the esport’s all-time greats. Frod will be joining the agency in this latest stage of his esports journey after fulfilling a variety of roles in the industry over the last 20 years.
After retiring as a professional player, Frod moved into coaching and he has also spent time as a manager, so this next move will see Frod transition into an agency role within esports for the first time. AFK Pros is delighted to have Frod join the team and looks forward to him bringing his wealth of experience and connections to better serve its growing roster of top talent.
“I am excited to start the next part of my career in esports, especially with the agency I’ve been with for the last few years,” says Frod. “Throughout my time in esports, I’ve always looked out for players and tried to best represent the interests of players, so it was extremely important to me that AFK valued this in the same way. To be able to continue to support players in this role with AFK is a blessing!”
“When we introduced Frod to our roster of clients in North America, many of the professional players shared fond memories of watching Frod in Counter-Strike tournaments when they were growing up, which was brilliant,” says Jamie, Lead Esport Agent at AFK Pros. “It’s fantastic to have someone with such a long tenure in esports join our ranks and bring with him such an impressive amount of connections and experience.”
