Every new staffer at Twitch is special, but if you’re into fighting games, then today’s announcement is extra special. Joining our in-house stable of fighting game experts and community liaisons — such as Mike Ross, D1, The Crimson Blur, Scar and Victheslik — is none other than GamerBee!
For those not into the fighting game scene, GamerBee has been involved in the FGC for over 25 years and was the first professional fighting game player in Taiwan. To detail all of his career highlights would require several more posts, but among his most notable accolades are being a Champion 16 times since 2010 and taking 2nd place in Street Fighter 4 at EVO in 2012 and 2015.
GamerBee’s role at Twitch is as our new Partnerships Development Lead in Taiwan. By bridging the language and culture barrier between Twitch and the local community in Taiwan, he will be able to assist Taiwanese broadcasters with improving their channels and growing their communities.
Here is what he had to say about coming on board: “To be at Twitch is like getting the Mario Lucky Star! Ever since I became a professional gamer, I knew gaming was my calling. Driven by this purpose and commitment, I look forward to strengthening the gaming community in Asia. I’ll be sharing my talents in Footsie, Shoryuken Anti-Air, and Ultra Combos to help partners and broadcasters have an awesome experience on Twitch in Taiwan.”
We are excited to have him on the team!
