White’s involvement in the Houston Outlaws stems back to November 2017, when he joined its former parent company Infinite Esports and Entertainment. The company was later sold to Immortals Gaming Club, with Houston Outlaws being acquired by Beasley Media Group.
White commented on moving up in the company: “It has been an honor getting to work with Beasley Esports over the last few months. The company has given us the resources to make our future events and initiatives even more exciting and engaging for Houston Outlaws fans. I am thrilled to continue working alongside Chief Operating Officer Lori Burgess and the team in my new role and look forward to everything in store for the team in 2020 and beyond!”
Esports Insider says: White has been around Houston Outlaws since the early days, through multiple ownership groups, so there’s no doubt he knows the franchise like the back of his hand. We wish him the best of luck in his new role!
