Following a change in the organization’s leadership structure, Hector “H3CZ” Rodriguez, the founder of North American esports organisation OpTic Gaming, has taken on the position of CEO once again.
Rodriguez will resume his role as OpTic’s Strategic Advisor, and former CEO Adam Rymer will take over.
OpTic Gaming has undoubtedly had a fascinating past. Prior to the sale of the OpTic brand and its parent company to Immortals Gaming Club in 2017, Rodriguez started the business in 2006 and served as its CEO. While working for NRG in 2020, Rodriguez acquired OpTic once more. After joining forces with Envy Gaming a year later, OpTic Gaming eventually dropped the Envy name in 2022.
With the organization’s founder now in charge of the business he founded, Rodriguez’s path appears to have come full circle. The new CEO also owns the Pine Park cannabis-related business in addition to his esports endeavours.
Rymer has played a significant role in OpTic’s history, despite the fact that he only joined the company in 2020 as CEO. Rymer oversaw the acquisition of Botisimo, a provider of streaming technology, as well as the merging of Envy Gaming and OpTic.
Instead of leaving the company, Rymer will take over as a strategic advisor, giving up the more hands-on style of a CEO for one that is more helpful.
Geoff Moore, President and COO of OpTic, said: “We’re continuing to push the industry forward and bring ways to excite and engage with fans to life through content, events, and new platforms.
“I’m grateful to have Adam staying on as a strategic advisor to the company on several initiatives as he also takes time to focus on projects outside of our business.”
