Not-for-profit organisation British Esports Association has announced the appointment of three new advisory board members.
The latest additions to the advisory board are Ramesh Singh, Dr Maria Stukoff, and Professor Andy Miah.
Also known as “r2k,” Singh is a senior lecturer at the University of Chichester, working as part of its esports-dedicated degree. He has competed in the likes of Quake III, Trackmania, and Battlefield. He’s also worked for Razer and GINX Esports TV.
Stukoff is the Director of Morson Maker Space at the University of Salford and Co-chair of the Esports Industry Collaboration programme. She previously held positions at the likes of BBC and Sony.
Miah, who’s also Co-chair of the Esports Industry Collaboration at the University of Salford, has worked with the International Olympic Committee and International Sports Federation. He’s an established speaker and often researches art, ethics, technology, and culture.
The new additions to the advisory board have been announced following the departures of Carleigh Morgan and Heather Dower.
Andy Payne OBE, Chair of Advisory Board at British Esports Association discussed the additions in a release: “We are delighted to bring on board some great new Advisory Board members and game advisers to the Association and thank all of our outgoing members. We look forward to working together in 2020 and beyond to deliver some of the projects outlined in our recent Vision 2022 document.”
Esports Insider says: The new additions to the BEA advisory board will no doubt assist in its good work for the grassroots UK esports scene. With a three-year plan already in place, the organisation’s sights appear to be firmly set in the future now.
