Esports event network Nerd Street Gamers (NSG) has hired Andrea Intiso, formerly of ESL Gaming, as its Director of Publisher Relations.
Intiso has been working in the esports and gaming industry for over 14 years. Most recently she was the Director of Esports Services at ESL, after holding the position of Senior Partner Manager at the company for nearly two years.
Intiso joins NSG during a very active time for the company. Earlier this month, the company hired Jonathon Oudthone, formerly the President of Esports Stadium Arlington (ESA), as its Director of National Programming after ESA removed most of its staff — reportedly replacing the leadership team with the family of Texas Rangers majority owner Ray Davis who helped launch the venue.
In November NSG announced its monthly subscription service, Nerd Street+, which will reportedly launch in all NSG-owned Localhost facilities, including in Philadelphia, Denver, Austin, and St. Louis. Moreover, in September the company announced plans for a 40,000-square-foot ‘esports industry campus’ in Philadelphia known as ‘The Block’.
NSG has also facilitated various top-tier VALORANT tournaments in the last few months, including one half of the North American First Strike series, most recently the company announced a 2021 invitational in collaboration with Complexity Gaming.
Esports Insider says: Nerd Street Gamers is expanding rapidly, and many of the company’s big decisions throughout 2020 appear astute and/or exciting. The acquisition of Andrea Intiso is the latest in the firm’s impressive development.
