Like Rick Fox before him, Jared Jeffries’s history casts echoes (see what we did there?!) of his trials and triumphs on the basketball court. Before he joined Echo Fox, he operated as Director of Player Personnel for the Denver Nuggets NBA team. On August 1st, Jared will take up his new role as the team’s President while keeping a sharp eye on players exploding with potential as esports athletes.
As President of Echo Fox, Mr. Jeffries will oversee a variety of tasks including roster selection, team management, player recruiting, hiring and managing coaches and GMs, and overseeing the training of their players. He will also work aggressively towards the goal of building the brand by overseeing streaming platforms and engagement on social media.

This decision carries incredibly good timing for Echo Fox, as two of their players – Tokido and JDCR – were recently crowned the EVO World Champions of Street Fighter V and Tekken 7, respectively. These victories further elevate Echo Fox to the status as one of the most respected esports organizations in the world.
