North American esports organisation FaZe Clan has appointed Tammy Brandt as its new Chief Legal Officer (CLO).
Brandt, who will also hold the title of Head of Business and Legal Affairs, joins the organisation after a three-year spell at virtual reality technology company Dreamscape Immersive as its Chief Legal Officer.
In her new role, Brandt will oversee all of FaZe Clan’s legal affairs, M&A and corporate matters. She will also work directly alongside FaZe Clan’s Board of Directors and executive team.
Lee Trink, CEO of FaZe Clan, spoke on the appointment in a release: “Tammy has shown her ability to be agile and help both private and public companies in different industries achieve great success. She has a stellar reputation in the legal and business communities. We are looking forward to Tammy’s high-energy and expertise as FaZe enters this next chapter of explosive growth.”
Brandt’s appointment is the latest in a string of new hires for FaZe Clan. In February, the organisation recruited Amit Bajaj as its new Chief Financial Officer and in December 2020, former NFL executive Bill McCullough joined as FaZe Clan’s Executive Vice President of Content.
The newly-appointed Chief Legal Officer also commented on her new role: “I am excited to help FaZe Clan grow as it continues to build out its talent roster, content pipeline and expand into new geographic areas and business verticals. FaZe Clan is well-positioned to build on its roots in gaming and evolve into a transformative global media company. I look forward to working with the Board, Lee and the rest of the team on this exciting journey.”
Esports Insider says: With a wealth of experience in the legal sector, FaZe Clan recruiting Tammy Brandt as its Chief Legal Officer is a smart move from the organisation.
