Heather began her esports career in 2011 casting CSGO, and soon became a well-known face and host at UK esports tournaments and events, including Insomnia tournaments.
"Her contribution to the industry, affiliation from grassroots to pro-level esports, and experience in marketing and communications, made Heather the outstanding candidate for the role," said James Dean, UK managing director at ESL. "We're extremely excited to have her join our team."
Heather commented: "I’m thrilled to join the well-oiled machine that is ESL UK. They are doing esports right, running excellent tournaments and supporting grassroots teams. I’m really excited to bridge the gap between the community and ESL and, in my new role, to help share their success stories."
