A former litigation partner at New York law firm Herrick Feinstein, Greeley jumped into the world of esports in 2017 when he joined Riot Games to lead the development of the company’s League Championship Series. This league, which operates out of Riot’s LCS Arena in Sawtelle, successfully brought a professional franchise model to Riot’s massively popular esports title “League of Legends.” Greeley now heads Riot’s esports operations in North America and Oceania and oversees competition in all of the company’s esports titles. Riot recently hosted its spring LCS championship at Houston’s NRG Stadium and is gearing up for the “League of Legends” world championship this fall.
