Walker walks in to Gamurs as regional VP of content


Esports and entertainment media network Gamurs Group has appointed Alex Walker to the newly created role of APJ vice president of content.

"With Alex's extensive editorial experience and with a background in esports and gaming content, I couldn't think of a better fit for this position," said Gamurs chief content officer Kevin Morris.

Gamurs founder and CEO Riad Chikhani said "Alex has a passion and enthusiasm for our brand and the content Gamurs creates. To have him join during a period of immense growth only further complements and strengthens our market-leading position in the arena of gaming, esports and entertainment."

Walker joins Gamurs after more than six years at Allure Media and Nine's Pedestrian Group, where he was editor of Kotaku Australia which launched in the Australian market in 2007.

He previously produced technology and gaming content for the ABC, and freelanced for PC Powerplay, Techly, Escapist Magazine, Cybershack and Walker also worked as a broadcast editor and a client support coordinator at Isentia.

Walker was the Australian tournament director for the 2008 World Cyber Games.

"I remember when I first started covering Australian esports in 2003, back when esports didn't exist as a term and the idea of competitive gaming was very much in its infancy," said Walker.

"It's been fascinating to see an Australian publisher that understands and loves esports and video games grow so quickly, and I'm thrilled to come on board and apply all this experience to help Gamurs grow even further. The company shares my vision for the potential for esports and the broader video game market, and I'm excited to see what we can build together."
