TwitchTV grows executive team
eSports broadcasting community hires Marcus Graham and James Harding
Twitch TV, which presents live broadcasts of completive and casual gaming, has appointed two new executives from the competitive gaming community.
" These guys are true ambassadors for the industry we so passionately support, and have each travelled far and wide to help realize the dream of Pro-Gaming," said the company's official blog.
"That's why we now welcome them to help guide us into the glorious eSports future!"
Marcus "djWHEAT" Graham will take the business development role of eSports manager for TwitchTV. Prior to joining the company, Graham produced the first live gaming show online, Epileptic Gaming, and worked with Samsung and G4TV.
James "2GD" Harding will head up Twitch TV's new European operations from Sweden. As well as an impressive competitive gaming record, Harding has also commentated for Turtle Entertainment and worked as a competitive feature designer at FUNCOM for Bloodline Champions.
On his SK Gaming profile, Harding describes himself as "a shy psychopathic type who likes to finger paint in the nude whilst watching Disney films."
Twitch TV is a spin off of popular live streaming video site Justin.tv, and separated itself into a new site in June of this year.
