Major League Gaming CEO Resigns

Matthew Bromberg resigned from his position as CEO of professional video gaming league Major League Gaming, amid differences of opinion with fellow management.
Matthew Bromberg resigned from his position as CEO of professional video gaming league Major League Gaming, amid differences of opinion with fellow management, reports said this week. Bromberg is leaving the company after more than four years, VC-related site VentureBeat reports. "We have had an extraordinary run of growth and success over the last four years. There was a feeling among the founders that it was time to scale back our ambitions and grow more slowly." He added, "That isn’t in my nature, and was not my plan. We all agreed it was best to find a new CEO to execute this strategy." The company recently announced a partnership to integrate online tournament functionality into upcoming EA Sports games this year, with new online game lobbies in certain EA Sports games directing gamers to MLG-sanctioned and refereed tournaments. MLG founder Sundance DiGiovanni will be taking the reins as interim CEO of the New York-based company. DiGiovanni said a recent board meeting exhibited "divergent opinions" about MLG's focus. "We are not changing the plan. It’s just a change in the velocity at which we are attempting to travel," DiGiovanni said. Bromberg became CEO of MLG in June 2007, replacing co-founder Mike Sepso. He was previously COO and president of the company.
