Mr. Jon Dwyer reports


NBA (National Basketball Association) champion and Toronto Raptors point guard Fred VanVleet has joined Wondr Gaming Corp.'s executive team as director of strategic athlete engagement.

Joining the Wondr team, Mr. VanVleet will aide in the following:

  • Provide strategic guidance on athlete engagement and partnerships;
  • Support influencer partnerships, including strategic input and participation on Wondr Gaming and Gaming Rewards influencer campaigns;
  • Help Wondr Gaming enhance its presence in marginalized communities and grow its digital footprint in Canada and the United States;
  • Promote Wondr Gaming on social channels and take part in creative content campaigns.

"Fred VanVleet is an inspiration. He is leader on and off the court, and to have him join the Wondr team to play a strategic role in our future growth is a huge opportunity for the business and an absolute honour. This engagement is another example that the future of businesses interacting with athletes is not on an ad hoc basis -- athletes like Fred VanVleet are more than ambassadors for companies; their experiences, knowledge and wisdom can play a central role in a company's growth. Fred will impact how we understand the gaming and professional sports industries, and we're excited to work together," stated chairman and chief executive officer Jon Dwyer.

"I've been fortunate to surround myself with great people who have a winning mentality. As a key player on the Toronto Raptors championship team in 2019, we demonstrated the importance of perseverance and working together as a unit. The leadership team at Wondr Gaming represents what it means to prioritize people and to develop a winning culture. I'm thrilled to join their executive team and to support Wondr as it continues to grow into an entertainment industry powerhouse," stated Mr. VanVleet.
