Top Tier Premier
On September 2, 2023, Tier One Entertainment named a new pool of talents in a press conference held at Moon Rabbit Cafe and Restaurant in San Juan, Manila.
Tier One big bosses graced the event, such as CEO Tryke Gutierrez and Jaba Orellana, the team’s Vice President of Talent Operations and Internal Expansion.
Tryke Gutierrez identified the similarities of their talents given that they have different niches and genres to portray in social media.
“I think for us, the most important common denominator is, to be honest, being a good person. Alam naman natin na ‘yung mga kids before, iba ‘yung way nila ng pag-market ng sarili nila (murahan, trashtalk-an). We try to change that.”
He added: “I think with that, you can see from all the talents that we have, regardless of the content they create, there is a certain level of goodness.”
In a speech, Jaba Orellana shared that they acquired innovations for the company that will keep them in line with their mission in building its success.
“Gusto pa namin palawakin yung industry as a whole, that’s why we have a development program like AMPLFY; it’s for us to be able to [produce] marami pang Sharlene and Bulldog in the coming years.”

“Wala, actually wala kayong aabangan. What you see is what you get. Kung sino ako off-stage, off-cam, on-cam. Actually, mas talkative nga ako dito. Siguro training sa akin na mas maging interactive pa ‘yung dating!” he shared.
Tier One family welcomed Corpuz and other social media personalities who are now ready to dominate the esports world with a contract signing.
The event’s main highlight is also welcoming two new big names, Sharlene San Pedro and Jhanzen Latorre, a.k.a Bulldog, in the biggest esports company in the Philippines.
Kapamilya actress, musician, and vlogger Sharlene San Pedro shared what pushed her to start her career and journey as a female streamer.
“Kaya ko ‘din s’ya pinasok kasi gusto ko na female na lang ‘yung mag-dominate. Masaya lang na ma-represent ‘yung mga kababaihan sa gaming industry,” she shared.
When the VIYLine Media Group (VMG) asked how Tier One contributed to her growth, she shared how the company helped her in many ways.
“Sa tingin ko po ‘yung pinaka-growth po talaga parang mas nalaman namin ‘yung branding namin, so para sa akin nalaman ko kung ano ako as a gamer,” Sharlene disclosed.
On the other hand, Jhanzen Latorre, a.k.a Bulldog, a rising gaming personality, also joined Tier One Entertainment to promote a safer gaming community. He also shared how Tier One contributed to his growth throughout his esports career.
