D&H Distributing recently announced it organized “Components and Gaming” business unit around esports and PC gaming. As part of this initiative, D&H hired esports industry leaders to aid in growth opportunities in this market. Some of the big names that are being brought on include Chris Geiser, Brandon Beyer, and Bubba Gaeddert.
“As it stands, only 10 percent of K-12 schools are competing in Varsity-level esports tournaments, yet the sport itself is growing exponentially,” said Peter DiMarco, vice president of VAR sales at D&H. “This creates a ground-floor opportunity, where 90 percent of the education community is open for deployments. D&H is directing considerable resources to help partners add this discipline to their core competencies including VAR, retail, and DMR partners. We’ve gone into the esports community to align ourselves with organizations with expertise in this area, and are proud to welcome more of those professionals into the fold at D&H. Together, we’ll help our partners profit and expand as the category accelerates.”
D&H plans to provide several other types of esports offerings. This includes gaming consoles, prebuilt systems, installation services, and accessory offerings.
D&H is a privately-held technology distribution company that was founded in 1918. The business currently operates six fully optimized distribution centers across the United States.
