The new hire was first noticed by Insider Gaming, who noticed that his LinkedIn profile had changed to reflect his new job.
The profile describes his previous role at Epic Games as ‘building the foundation of Battle Pass’ growth strategy, delivering great value for the product to as many players as possible.’
