Founding CEO of Akamon Entertainment, Vicenç hopes that others might find the title of Cheerleader-in-Chief just as fitting. His main responsibilities are to make sure that Akamon is the best company to work for in all the countries where it operates, that users love the products and service and that shareholders get a nice return above the cost of capital, all the while overseeing the company’s continued growth.
Previously, Vicenç was Chief Marketing Officer at Spanish low-cost airline Vueling, and considers the success of turning it from a startup into a cool and reputable million-euro brand as one of his most important professional achievements to date. As Managing Director at Cirsa Gaming Corporation he became an expert in the specifics of the gaming industry and as CEO at fashion label Custo Barcelona he had direct responsibility over finance, marketing, sales, operations and product functions.
Vicenç graduated in communications from Saint Louis University and went on to earn an MBA from IESE Business School, University of Navarra, and complete an Executive programme at Stanford University Graduate School of Business. He prides himself on his excellent communication skills – in four languages: English, French, Spanish and Catalan. He understands Portuguese and Italian, too.
He can play on all game platforms but admits to being a ´lousy Texas Hold’em player´, but when playing on mundijuegos.com it doesn’t matter because it’s only a few chips that he loses.
Travelling, eating and drinking take up a lot of his spare time, but he also works out and does sports – ‘to lose the weight gained from eating, drinking and playing games´. Another big passion is watching FC Barcelona with his dad and son, ‘kicking some ass’ at home.
