North also announced that Jonas Svendsen would be leaving the organisation to work at Fortnite developer Epic Games.

Leaving his role as Head of Esports for the organisation, Svendsen commented: “Thanks is a tiny word to the great people I have had the chance to meet and work within Esports, and I am so grateful that I got to experience the competitive side of gaming once again.”

In August, North entered a partnership with Sennheiser. Earlier in the year, it joined forces with both Pinnacle and We Are Nations.

Esports Insider says: As an organisation grows and moves forward, it’s important to have the right people in charge. With Pitt taking on this new role, North has hired somebody who’s proven to be capable in this industry.
