Esports talent agency Knacks has expanded its services beyond Poland to international markets.
18 months after launching and exclusively serving Polish streamers and players, the agency has now signed Estonian and Albanian Counter-Strike: Global players Kevin “HS” Tarn and Flatron “juanflatroo” Halimi.
In addition to HS and juanflatroo, the agency works with Polish talent and players such as Maciej “ZONY” Zoniuk, Sebastian “NEEX” Trela, Daniel “STOMP” Płomiński, Michał “snatchie” Rudzki, Filip “tudsoN” Tudev, Bartosz “Hyper” Wolny, Mateusz “TOAO” Zawistowski, and Łukasz “prawus” Ganczewski. From now on, it’s open to working with those based outside of Poland.
Knacks has rebranded and renovated its communication processes to handle its international expansion and plans to communicate entirely in English in the coming weeks to be more accessible. It will also launch a Medium page to house content that’s specific to agency work in esports.
Dawid Szymański, CEO of Knacks, spoke on the expansion in a release: “When establishing in 2018, without any investor and resources that would allow me to enter the industry firmly, I did not expect that in such a short period we would be able to attract the best players on the Polish scene and carry out activities with agencies, brands that often return to us for more. Our talents are able to generate millions of reach for specific brands and, most importantly for us, under our wings players achieve even better results and find excellent organizations to play.
“We have created a great team of esports enthusiasts who actively use their knowledge and skills to act with esports talents. I’m more than happy that together we decided to go ahead and officially open ourselves to foreign markets.”
Esports Insider says: There are plenty of talent agencies in esports as is but Knacks has a great foundation to build off of. Its first international signings are promising and, with its new approach and brand, we’re interested in seeing how the agency does in the coming months.
