MASONIC welcomes b3rt as a vital part of a new academy project
Today we officially announce the MASONIC Academy, a project we have been working towards since the early days of MASONIC and now we are able to present it to the world. The academy is a vital part of the vision carrying MASONIC forward, aiming to build more talent and to be a home for upcoming players and staff. Robert “b3rt” Naur will be leading the project and for now, the focus will be building a talented CS:GO Academy roster.
Robert “b3rt” Naur, Head of Academy says, “I am pleased to be at the front of talent development at MASONIC. From day one, the organisation has had talent development as one of its cores competences, it has been impressive to follow blaq working with the old Campus Vejle roster to a position as the 6th best CS:GO roster in Denmark.”
B3rt has proven his potential as leader and a coach of danish CS:GO projects at more than one occasion working his own project kinetic. His team was home to players like Queenix (MASONIC), maNkz (Copenhagen Flames) and PR1mE (Tricked Esports).
Robert “b3rt” Naur adds, “MASONIC already has a good setup with connections to primary and boardingschools, and it is my task to consolidate and expand this, making sure we have the best possible framework for talent development in the organisation. The first step in this process is the upcoming launch of our MASONIC Academy team.”
Lasse “anakin” Hansen, Head of Esports at MASONIC says, “Robert was at the top of our list of candidates from the beginning, so we are of course very proud to be able to present him as the head of our academy. He has experience from running teams in the best Danish leagues, and has proven that he has the ability to work with talented players on several occasions. His drive to develop talents, along with his experience working with young people in the educational system in Denmark is something we believe is the perfect fit for our academy.
