Jean Alphonse “AJ” Ponce leads Aces Pro Corp. Followers of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang landscape may be familiar with Ponce and his established brands like “Tambay TV League” and the AP Esports amateur MLBB teams. “The rebrand enables the team to move forward from the organizational challenges of 2023 and perform significantly better through the infusion of more resources for recruitment and player development. The Bren brand is well-loved and it has proven itself in multiple leagues. While there is no shortage of raw talent in its roster, my hope is that our leadership can help propel them to go ever upward,” says Ponce.
