Bodony’s extensive experience also extends to his role as Director of Operations at Voice of Intercollegiate Esports (VOICE), where he further championed the growth and recognition of collegiate esports.

Now, as an Advisor at Gamr, Bodony is set to leverage his expertise to expand the organisation’s reach and impact within the North American scholastic market. By tapping into his extensive network and industry connections, Bodony seeks to foster collaborations and cross-pollination between Gamr and educational institutions across the continent. “My aim is to help Gamr expand their reach in the North American scholastic market so that they may continue to deepen their already profound impact.”
