After TNL 200, I hinted at expansions to take The Next Level to the next level. This is the first of many new upcoming features and products.
To accelerate this growth, I am thrilled to announce that The Next Level has made it’s first two official hires, starting with James Kozachuk!
If you’re a regular reader of The Next Level, you’ll know that James performed the herculean task of gathering all of the data and writing the “2017 Collegiate eSports Report: 40 Schools, $4M In Scholarships” article while also contributing to the TNL Brand Tracker.
James has worked within eSports since 2011, with key roles at both the Collegiate Starleague and the High School Starleague. He is currently a researcher at the University of Central Florida, where he studies the effects of after-school gaming programs on students while also working as a Head Administrator for Blizzard Entertainment's collegiate eSports division, Tespa.
James will continue his work on the topics he's known for at The Next Level - collegiate eSports, research and brands.
Welcome aboard James!
