The Switch, a managed private cloud service provider for the broadcast media industry, is heading into esports. With a broadcast track record that includes events like the Superbowl and the Academy Awards, it works at the highest tier of sport and entertainment broadcasting. But the company’s new head of gaming suggests esports already stacks up very well when compared to traditional sports.
Charles Conroy, the new vice president of gaming at The Switch, has a long history with esports. Starting his own competitive esports career back in the year 2000, he moved into team management and eventually became the chief development officer at Next Gen Tech, the parent company of Complexity Gaming , before its sale to the Dallas Cowboys.
