Blizzard: Kim Phan leaves role as Global Esports Director

Kim Phan, Blizzard's Global Esports Director, has left the company after 13 years. Rumors of her departure had grown in recent weeks, more so after the departure of Nate Nanzer, former commissioner of the Overwatch League.

Blizzard: Kim Phan leaves role as Global Esports Director

In a post written on the TeamLiquid forum — one that she particularly likes — Kim Phan, now former Blizzard Global Esports Director, sent a message of thanks to the community to confirm her departure.

After 13 years of loyal service, another prominent member of the California-based firm is leaving, shortly after Nate Nanzer left to join Epic Games. It's complicated to imagine the consequences of this decision at the moment, but it is certain that these departures will somehow impact the competitive scenes of the licences concerned.

Phan's last day at Blizzard was June 14. She says that she will resume her career in the near future, remaining in the video games industry.
