Gaming and esports entertainment and events company TGS Esports has announced the creation of Discover Management, a full-service management company designed to ‘help esports influencers, content creators and players realise their full value’.
The management team, formed alongside Riley Trimble, formerly of Spire Management, and Marius Adomnica of Segev LLP, intends to grow the content creator space with an endemic understanding of the industry.

TGS Esports Co-founder and CEO Spiro Khouri commented in a release: “At TGS we are working with creators on a daily basis. One constant we have dealt with is that creators love creating but may not have the experience with brand deals or legal matters. We’re helping creators legitimise their career path and guiding them through that process. At the same time, we’re able to connect our partner brands with creators to create mutually beneficial relationships.”
Trimble previously served as a partner and COO of Spire Management, a content creator management firm said to generate over 148m minutes of watch time every month. As for Adomnica, the esports lawyer has over ten years of legal experience and ‘extensive’ experience with content creators, esports organisations, tournament organisers, and players.
Justin Simpao, General Manager of Discover Management, added: “We understand the value that content creators bring to the table. At the same time, we can help influencers deal with niche situations that arise from the growing ecosystem of influencer business. This includes curating partnerships, innovating ways to help our creators grow their personal brand, and handling the complex administrative details such as self-incorporation and finance management.”
Esports Insider says: The last several months have seen expansion plans come across the wire from the TGS Esports headquarters. Beyond this latest news, the entertainment company had signed a LOI to acquire Pepper Esports and completed the acquisition of Volcanic Media.
