GGPoker has added two more members to its GGTeam. Pro poker player Jeff Gross and television personality Ali Nejad will join GGPoker as its newest brand ambassadors.
Gross and Nejad will assist the GGTeam by creating new content, engaging poker fans and attracting new fans to the world of poker.
Both will represent GGPoker online and in-person. Gross will serve as the brand’s “Voice of GGPoker,” while Nejad will assist the team as its Media Ambassador.
GGPoker adds Gross and Nejad to a growing list of company brand ambassadors, including Daniel Negreanu, Bertrand ‘ElkY’ Grospellier, Jason Koon and Fedor Holz.
Negreanu took a moment to welcome Gross and Nejad aboard and said their addition will be an asset to the company.
He commented: “GGPoker is the world’s biggest online poker room, but that doesn’t mean we’re not focused on growing even bigger.
“Adding two of poker’s best contest-creating personalities to the GGTeam means we’ll better entertain our existing customers while broadening the game to reach new ones.”
Gross hails from Ann Arbor, Michigan. The 35-year-old streamer and podcaster is well known on YouTube and Twitch, in additional to his pro poker career.
Nejad, an Iranian-American broadcaster, has been featured on a number of poker programs, including NBC’s Poker After Dark, The Ultimate Poker Challenge TV series and in coverage of ESPN’s World Series of Poker.
Gross expressed his gratitude and excitement to team up with GGPoker.
“I am thrilled to be joining GGPoker. It’s an amazing time right now for poker and GG is leading the way,” he said.
“I am looking forward to being a brand ambassador as well as hosting the best tournament on the internet; the weekly $10,300 Super Million$, with final tables broadcast every Tuesday.”
