The newly formed Esports Entertainment Group has strengthened its executive leadership ranks after confirming the appointment of Jeff Cohen as Vice President of Strategic Planning and Investor Relations.

A seasoned Wall Street executive, Cohen is the former equity analyst lead for private investment fund Stephens Inc, covering esports, gaming and further entertainment sectors.

Cohen has maintained further IR experience having served as a lead equity specialist for Barclays’ investment banking division. 

Updating investors, Grant Johnson CEO Esports Entertainment, branded Cohen as a vital hire for the firm’s next stage of growth, having become the first igaming start-up to list on the New York Nasdaq Exchange this June.
