Elie Aouad

At the helm of CeleBreak’s social media and marketing department is Elie Aouad who joined the team in October 2020 as an intern and eventually stayed with the team in a more integrated role. Having graduated with a MBA in Sports Management and Digital Marketing as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Business, Elie knew from early on that his love of football, and sports in general, went far beyond the field. 

In Beirut, Lebanon, where he was raised, sports are not a very big part of the culture and although there are sports teams and leagues, it is not something that is taken as seriously as, for instance, in Spain. Following his love for sports, he opted for a future working on the marketing side of sports, although his love for football was never forgotten. 

In 2019 Elie moved to Spain to finish his studies while experiencing life in a new country, meeting new people, and immersing himself in a new culture. Sun, beaches, and plenty of football were enough to convince him that this was where he should stay. Not to mention that being an FC Barcelona fan living in Barcelona was a huge plus!

After hearing about CeleBreak through a friend in Barcelona, he eventually became a user of the CeleBreak app. After participating in various games and seeing the service and potential of CeleBreak, he pounced at the opportunity to join the CeleBreak team when the internship position became available. 

After many months of working hand-in-hand with Brit Hermans, CeleBreak’s Barcelona City Manager, and learning the ins and outs of the company, Elie has now taken charge of all things related to social media and marketing.
