COO of Hi-Rez Studios and President of Skillshot Media will serve on the 2019 board.
Make-A-Wish Georgia appoints Todd Harris, COO of Hi-Rez Studios and President of Skillshot Media to the 2019 board of directors.
This appointment is an extension of Hi-Rez Studios and Skillshot Media’s dedication to Make-A-Wish Georgia as a community partner and supporter. Each year, Make-A-Wish Georgia benefits from Spring Fling -- an annual, online event that encourages the SMITE and Paladins gaming community to raise funds for local wishes. Over the past two years, the event successfully raised more than $170,000 for the organization.
“I am thrilled to serve on the board of Make-A-Wish Georgia and further our commitment to this life-changing mission,” said Todd Harris, Hi-Rez Studios COO and Skillshot Media President. “As a board member, I look forward to lending my talents and expertise to serving children with critical illnesses and fulfilling wishes across the state of Georgia.”
Harris is a co-founder of Hi-Rez Studios, one of the largest video game studios in the Southeast, and President of Skillshot Media, the largest dedicated esports production company on the east coast. Between Hi-Rez Studios and Skillshot Harris works to advance competitive gaming and help partner brands authentically reach our esports fans.
“We are very fortunate to have Todd by our side as we continue to strengthen Georgia communities by creating life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses,” said Tim Earley, Make-A-Wish Georgia CEO. “Todd embodies the spirit of community and has already made an impact on our mission. The leadership, talent, expertise and energy he brings to the table will help propel our work of granting the wish of every eligible throughout our state.”
