In her new role, Spencer will be responsible for driving business, media, sponsorship and partnership revenue across Misfits’ brands and assets. This includes the organisation’s Overwatch League and Call of Duty League franchises Florida Mayhem and Florida Mutineers, respectively.

Spencer joins Misfits after more than two years at North American esports company Wisdom Gaming, where she recently served as its Vice President of Sales and Partnerships. Spencer’s tenure also includes a lengthy spell at Dragon Door Publications.

One of Misfits’ new focuses is the upcoming launch of TubNet, a new cross-platform Minecraft Server debuting sometime in August.
