Global esports director Kim Phan departs Blizzard

Global esports director Kim Phan departs Blizzard

June 20, 2019 | By Alissa McAloon

After more than 13 years with the company, Kim Phan has stepped down as Blizzard’s global esports director and left the company in favor of a “new endeavor” elsewhere in the game industry.

Phan shared news of her departure and reflected on her tenure at Blizzard in a post shared to an esports forum, noting that her final day at Blizzard was June 14.

“As I hang up my sword and shield, I look forward to a bright future and wish all my Blizzard friends and family the very best,” wrote Phan.

Phan’s departure marks the second major esports-related vacancy to hit Blizzard in the last month. Near the end of May, Overwatch League co-creator and commissioner Nate Nanzer announced he was leaving the company for a position at Fortnite developer Epic Games. Activision Blizzard Esports Leagues president and CEO Pete Vlastelica stepped in to take over Nanzer’s duties following his departure.
