This week on The Esports Moment we get one-on-one with Jack Harari, Vice President of International Partnerships at Activision Blizzard Esports Leagues. He’s in charge of making the big commercial partnerships happen beyond the US borders for all Blizzard and Activision esports franchises, including the Overwatch League, which we talk about in depth, and he’ll also be tackling the needs of Call of Duty World League as well down the track.
Jack came to Activision Blizzard in mid 2018 from almost five years in global partnerships development at the NBA, so he brings some very serious traditional sports expertise into the esports domain.
Jack was a really nice guy and was in Sydney to speak at a Business of Sports Summit event so it was a real treat to have Activision Blizzard make the time to sneak The Esports Moment into his schedule. His insights are really interesting so I’m sure you’ll get a lot out of this conversation about his experience so far in esports, how he sees commercial and broadcast partners fitting into the evolving landscape, and lots more.
