Brazilian esports organization paiN Gaming has hired former Riot Games Brasil Esports Ops Manager Filipe Makarausky as its new esports director. Since 2013 Makarausky worked on the Brazilian League of Legends Championship (CBLOL) and also in the development of the Valorant and TeamFight Tactics scenes in Brazil.
At paiN, Makarausky will be responsible for the administrative and strategic planning of paiN Gaming’s line-ups. “An important part of my mission at paiN will be to strengthen the relationship between athletes and sponsors. This will take place, in addition to supporting the commercial and marketing team, in the creation and validation of new products and projects that have as their initial objective the engagement and involvement of the teams. In this way, we will be able to grant quality execution and amplification,” Makarausky told The Esports Observer.
paiN Gaming is one of the main and most traditional esports organizations in Brazil, having won the first split of CBLOL in 2021 and being featured in Riot Games’ League of Legends Mid-Season Invitational (MSI) this year in Iceland. Current sponsors are TIM Live, BMW, Motorola, Ame Digital, JBL, bank BS2, and Western Digital.
