Yevhen Zolotarov has been working for Na`Vi for over 3 years and is familiar with all the business processes of the organization. He has originally joined the club as the Head of HR, and his key tasks included shaping the club’s structure and HR management. He later worked with sponsors and business development. In the past 6 months, he has acted as the eSports Director and worked with Natus Vincere rosters.
“For the past 7 years I’ve devoted myself to the team and the Na`Vi brand. From the very first day I aspired to build the best eSports team in the world! We’ve had our ups and downs, but we’ve achieved incredible heights and broke many records! It became possible due to synergy, will and selfless work day after day of every single person involved in this project. Now the time has come for me to turn this page and go on to set the new goals that go beyond the club. That's why I made my decision to hand over control of the club to the best candidate possible – to Yevhen Zolotarov, who has been helping Na`Vi to achieve its most important goals for all these years!
I’d like to thank all the players who played for Na`Vi, as well as all the people I used to work with, all the tournament organizers and our partners. We’ve made this way together side by side from the very first day. I also want to thank our fans, who made me cry and smile :)))) I love you all so much. These were the best 7 years of my life!”
“Once, I gave up the career in traditional business for the hobby of my entire life, for eSports. Natus Vincere has become everything to me: my passion, my hobby, my inspiration and my second home. I am very grateful to Alexander for his trust and I will make everything I can to justify it.
We have an approved strategy of club development and clear goals. We aim to improve the results of our current teams, the quality of the media content and new rosters. My responsibilities will include the control of the fulfillment of our liabilities under the sponsorship contracts and the achievement of the planned financial indicators by establishing new partnerships. Here at Na`Vi, we have all the necessary conditions to implement these goals. I have a clear vision and the tools to achieve the goals we have set. I believe that I won’t let down our players, staff and fans. One more time – thank you very much. Go, Na`Vi!”
We will arrange an interview with Alexander as soon as possible to ask him about his life and his plans.
