Best known for founding League of Legends esports statistics website Oracle’s Elixir, Sevenhuysen previously worked at North American esports organisation 100 Thieves as its Director of Esports Analytics. His new role at GRID will see him support teams utilising GRID’s League of Legends, VALORANT and Rainbow Six Siege Data Portals, per a release.

Schwartz previously worked at YouTube Gaming as its Strategic Partnership Manager for Games Publishers. Prior to joining YouTube he also worked as Head of Global Esports Business Development and Partnerships at PUBG Corporation.

The announcement states that Schwartz will be tasked with advancing the company’s business development department whilst also ‘unlocking new business opportunities’. His new position at GRID will also focus on commercial and partnership activities.

On the new appointments, Moritz Mauer, GRID Founder and CEO, commented: “It’s great to have experts in their domains join the team. Tim’s hands-on expertise will ensure a best-in-class experience for all esports teams working across the League of Legends, VALORANT, and Rainbow Six Siege GRID Data Portals.

“Together with Julian’s high-level experience with top-tier publishers, platforms and partnerships; we aim to truly unlock the potential of in-game data by creating meaningful connections across the entire ecosystem — from rights holders through media partners to the single fan experience.”

GRID’s Rainbow Six Seige Data Portal (R6DP) was the latest to be added to its arsenal after its launch earlier this month. GRID’s data portals provide in-game data to esports teams, with access to the R6DP offered free of charge to BLAST R6 organisations. These teams are able to search, query, filter or download data from BLAST R6 matches.
