Evgeniy Roshchupkin, the CEO of British esports organisation Tundra Esports, has announced his departure from the company via a LinkedIn post.
Roshchupkin did not give an exact reason for his departure. Moreover, he did not share details about any future plans.
Tundra Esports has not disclosed any information about who Roshchupkin’s successor will be.
Heralded as one of the United Kingdom’s major esports organisations, Tundra Esports is perhaps most known for winning Dota 2’s The International in 2022. Alongside Dota 2, Tundra also fields teams in Fortnite and Rocket League.
Last year, Liverpool footballer Virgil Van Dijk became an ambassador and shareholder of the esports organisation.
The news of Roshchupkin’s departure comes around a month after David Dastoyan joined Tundra Esports as its new Head of Business Development. Around the same time the organisation’s Director, Danny Lopez, launched his own gaming and creative studio.
Roshchupkin joined Tundra in 2020 as a part-time consultant before being promoted to CEO in December 2021. He was one of the key figures in Tundra’s growth in recent years. Prior to Tundra Esports, Roshchupkin notably worked as a Global Marketing Director for British esports company Gfinity.
Evgeniy Roshchupkin, former CEO of Tundra Esports, commented: “I am departing as a CEO of Tundra Esports and I am immensely proud of what we have achieved together during my time here. In just over 2.5 years as CEO and Strategy Consultant before that, we achieved a historic victory at The International, the largest esports championship globally ($18m prize pool, >70m hours watched).
“I look forward to seeing Tundra Esports continue to thrive and achieve even greater success in the future.”
Alongside having a partnership with betting company 1XBET, Tundra’s commercial portfolio also includes the likes of noblechairs and UK-based gaming venue company Sidequest
