It’s a special week on The SVG Podcast: ESports Week! All week long, we will dedicate daily episodes to discussions around the exciting technology and storytelling present and future of the exploding world of esports.

On today’s episode, we are joined by Yvette Martinez-Rea, CEO of ESL North America, the largest independent esports company on the planet, which is known for running pro competitions in videogames, including CounterStrike: Global Offensive, Rocket League, and Hearthstone.

Martinez-Rea offers a look inside the Germany-based organization, at her role overseeing operations in North America, and a peek at the strategy of ESL in the U.S. and beyond. The conversation is moderated by Felisa Israel, principal owner of 10 Fold Entertainment, an independent production company based in L.A.

This interview comes from the stage at SVG’s inaugural Esports Production Forum last week in Los Angeles.
