Yuga Labs' Next CEO Says That He Will Be Heading To The Otherside This Weekend.
As Voyagers get ready for the Second Trip, Yuga Labs’ soon to be Chief Executive Officer took to Twitter and said that he’ll be breaking on through to the Otherside with the community this weekend!
“Where am I going to be on Saturday, Yuga Labs’ next CEO, Daniel Alegre, tweeted along with an Othersidemeta post. “Take one easy guess. Excited!”
Yuga Labs holders will likely see Alegre post about the Otherside and see him focus on Yuga Labs’ metaverse ambitions based on the company’s previous comments about Alegre.
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, Yuga Labs announced that Alegre would be taking over as the company’s CEO in mid 2023 in a December 2022 press release.
In that press release, Yuga Labs Co-Founder Garga explicitly said that Alegre was joining the Yuga Labs team to help the company compete with “giants” in the metaverse space.
“When it comes to the metaverse we’re competing with giants,” Garga wrote on December 19th,2022. “In order to catapult Otherside and our other ambitious projects to new heights, we’ve known for a long time we wanted to bring in someone with a proven track record of building at the highest possible level. Knowing this, Nicole, Wylie, and I have been on the hunt for the right candidate. Our search led us to Daniel Alegre who will become Yuga Labs’ new CEO in the first half of 2023. Daniel is a seasoned, visionary executive who shares our passion for innovation and creativity.”
Prior to being named as Yuga Labs’ next CEO, Alegre worked at Activision Blizzard for three years as the company’s President and Chief Operating Officer. Before that, Alegre spent 16 years at Google where he was the President of Global and Strategic Partnerships, the President of Global Retail, the President of Asia Pacific, among several other roles.
The second Trip to the Otherside is set to take place tomorrow afternoon beginning at 12 P.M. EST. The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to cover all things second trip and will bring you live coverage from the metaverse tomorrow. Stay tuned for updates!
