Jon Vlassopulos, the former Roblox VP, Global Head of Music, has joined the advisory board of Dubit, a UK-based games designer for the metaverse.
Vlassopulos left his role at Roblox at the end of April, but has stayed on as an advisor at the platform.
Dubit is described as “one of the largest developers of metaverse games, experiences, and events for brands”.
The company’s customers include the likes of Nickelodeon, UEFA, The Grammy’s and Disney.
Dubit also runs the Metaverse Gaming League, claimed to be the first esports league in the metaverse.
Vlassopulos joins Dubit after almost three years at Roblox, where he led music initiatives.
According to press statement announcing Vlassopulos’ appointment to Dubit’s advisory board, these concerts “reached and engaged over 100 million people” globally.
Dubit recently created virtual experiences for the BRIT Awards and the Grammys, and featured virtual performances from UK artist Pink Pantheress and Camilo.
Vlassopulos will work with Dubit in a senior advisory capacity on future metaverse strategies, says the company, and will support its partnerships with brands, publishers, artists, and metaverse platforms.
“Jon’s relationships, unrivalled experience and creative production expertise will be an invaluable part of our ongoing strategy.”
