POWER PLAYERS – NEIL DUFFY
eFuse is growing its team, including the hire of Neil Duffy
, where he will serve as Chief Revenue Officer for the platform, looking to accelerate event production and partnership capabilities. The Columbus, Ohio startup is considered as the top discovery hub for creators and gamers to meet, compete and find opportunities in esports. Duffy was previously the Chief Commercial Officer at CSL Esports and WorldGaming Network which was acquired in September 2020 by Playfly Sports. In addition, the company announced that Herb May would join Neil as Director of Partnership to further accelerate content and deal development. Cynopsis asked Duffy about his new role.
Duffy on his move to eFuse: “Esports has two major problems: discovery and revenue. I think this move to eFuse allows me to work with the best discovery platform for scholastic and amateur talent. What eFuse has been able to achieve in just over a year in business is impressive, we have over 500,000 members on our platform that have created more than 23,000 unique opportunities including scholarships, jobs, internships and more.
On what he is most excited about: “The company culture is ELITE. It’s a young and hungry staff who are doers and dreamers. The combination of speed, agility and passion is going to catch a lot of people by surprise. We’re going to make some pretty bold moves in the short term. We have some really great partnerships in place already with brands like Barstool Sports, ESPN and Epic Games. With the amount of events eFuse already hosts including Women of the eRena, The Proving Grounds, weekly High School combines and special events with influencers, I will have the most diverse inventory catalogue to sell against in the industry.
On the start-up life: “I’m still young (37) and in the business building part of my career, I want to be able to build something that becomes a staple in the future of gaming. I feel like we accomplished that in scholastic esports in my six years there, we helped pioneer that space and it’s more structured now than ever before. The startup life is the kind of pace that I enjoy, I would rather work on a new campaign concept than sit and watch a movie, it’s a work life harmony more than a work life balance.
On a measuring success in 2021: We’re laser focused on growing the platform, opportunities and events. My opinion is that if we create experiences that people want to participate in and watch, the eyeballs and partnerships will follow. We are the frontrunners to become the biggest social network in gaming by focusing on the community, building our tech stack around their needs and either building, borrowing or buying to reach critical mass and scale.
On which deal he is most proud of and the deal he would you love to do: Great question and tough question! I think the 2020 TikTok Cup we were able to do mid-pandemic was my favorite deal – it went from concept to execution in probably 10 days, but tremendous teamwork on our side and the TikTok side to bring to life. My dream deal would be to get Bumble involved as a sponsor for Women of the eRena, it’s the perfect fit! The WOTE series is all about raising the profile of women in gaming. Mark my words, I’ll get that deal done in 2021!

In addition, Allied Esports, and the Company’s Board agreed to explore strategic options for the esports business, including a possible sale. The company has engaged Lake Street Capital Markets to assist with the process.
Learfield IMG College named Eric Hartness as vice president, esports. This marks the first position of its kind for the company, where Hartness will focus on developing and expanding the company’s esports strategy and related inventory offerings. He is the former vice president, marketing for Bandai Namco and the former head of marketing for Amazon Game Studios.
