Singapore: Chatri Sityodtong, the Chairman and CEO of ONE Championship, is scheduled to receive the 2017 Influential Brands® Top CEO of the Year award at the 2017 CEO Asia Conference organized in conjunction with Deloitte.
Sityodtong will ascend the stage at the Capitol Theatre on Tuesday, 7 November to accept the award, a statement said.
This award is given to CEO’s who have proven exemplary in various areas, namely exhibiting strong business leadership, building confidence from stakeholders and fully embracing Branding as part of the business strategy.
ONE company, which brought Asia’s unique flavor of martial arts to fans all over the world since its establishment in 2011, has achieved incredible success, landing major partnerships which includes deals with Disney, Marvel, LG, Kawasaki, Panasonic, Haier, NagaWorld, Universal Music Group and Tune Talk, to name a few.
“It is an honor to receive the 2017 Top CEO of the Year Award from Influential Brands, but I have to give credit to an amazing team we have at ONE Championship,” said Chatri Sityodtong.
” ONE Championship promises to continue to dedicate itself to highlighting Asia’s greatest cultural treasure, martial arts, and telling its inspirational stories through our local homegrown martial arts superheroes.
“2018 promises to be an even better year, and I can’t wait to share every moment with our beloved fans. Thank you for the recognition, InfluentialBrands,” he added.
Led by Sityodtong, the martial arts organization has achieved sensational growth, marking significant increases in social media influence and television distribution in the past three years.
The company has managed to garner a whopping 8.3-billion social media impressions in 2017 from just 352-million in 2014, which is more than a 23x increase.
Social media video views are even more impressive, totalling 1.5-billion across multiple platforms compared to 312 thousand just three years prior.
Furthermore, ONE Championship has posted astronomical increases in global TV distribution, now being broadcast to a potential one-billion viewers in over 128 countries worldwide.
In the past three years alone, ONE has come to a peak TV ratings share of 1-2% to a staggering 11-36% projected by the end of 2017. That is up to 36x the amount of growth. In comparison, TV ratings in Asia for global sports media properties such as the EPL, F1, and the NBA only sit at 1-6%. This includes an increase in annual TV broadcast per core country, coming from 12-18 hours to a phenomenal 100-2800 hours, a more than 230x spike.
