Odgers Berndtson, one of the largest executive search firms in the world, has entered the world of eSports.
Its new eSports division can help you find an executive or board member for any eSports related business, such as leagues, teams, sponsors and games publishers. The new team will work out of the London office, but will also work in the US and Asian markets.
Odgers Berndtson has specialised in sports and games for years, meaning entering the world of eSports seemed like a bit of a no brainer.
"I am delighted that Odgers’ structure and scale enable us to provide a comprehensive search solution for the global eSports community,” said Andrew Bulloss who heads up the Global Gaming practice at Odgers Berndtson. “As this sector matures, the need for senior talent from a wide range of backgrounds will be evident and we are very well placed to support teams, leagues and sponsors in securing the very best leadership profiles. We look forward to seeing how this nascent industry transforms in the coming years and hope to play a part in its growth."
