As well as spending over 12 years with NCompass, his resume also includes working as Red Bull’s gaming lead and being the Co-founder of Adamas Esports.
Over the last 12 months, Vindex has continuously strengthened its backroom staff as it looks to bolster its operations both externally and internally. In February, the company also announced the hiring of Iraisa Jones as its Director of Human Resources.
Last year, Vindex became the first gaming company to join the World Economic Forum’s Global Innovators Community.
Esports Insider Says: Vindex adding yet another experienced name to its backroom staff is no surprise. Fitzpatrick’s impact on Vindex will likely be seen in the near future as the company continues to develop its products, platforms, and services alongside Adamas Esports’s Co-founder.
