In this new role, Gillespie will be working with the Opulous team to assist in sourcing new talent for artist drops, as well as connecting to industry tastemakers, partners, and potential investors.
Gillespie will also be joined by Jay Moore this week, the former senior director of Investments at Kobalt Music, who will be helping to evaluate new investment projects to be sold through the Opulous platform.
On Gillespie’s appointment, CEO and founder of Opulous Lee Parsons said: “The addition of Mark as senior advisor and Jay as CIO demonstrates the ambition we have for this platform. We’re moving in a very exciting direction and growing fast, with a bunch of new hires on the way. Plus, we have some very big artist names joining the platform in the wake of the incredible demand we’ve just seen with Lil Pump. Watch this space!”
“I’m hugely excited to be advising Lee and the team at Opulous and helping bring what I believe is a revolutionary product to the world,” shared Gillespie. “Opulous is undoubtedly a game changer and I’m very proud to be involved."
