ESL UK co-managing director Spike Laurie has left the UK for a new role in the US.
His position is now senior director, global publisher and developer relations at ESL, and he has relocated to Los Angeles, according to his LinkedIn profile.
Spike originally joined ESL back in September from Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment.
James Dean remains as the other co-MD of ESL UK, though it’s not clear at this stage if anyone is being brought in to replace Spike or if there will be a change in structure.
Spike is also co-chair of games industry trade body UKIE’s esports sub group, and was recently named a Sports Industry NextGen young leader, along with Fnatic’s Patrik “cArn” Sättermon.
