Sway House co-founder weighs in on esports growth, innovation. For generations, buying a sports team was the ultimate signal of having made it into the upper echelons of the uber-rich. When the LA Clippers went up for sale in 2014, a veritable who’s who of the world’s most wealthy expressed interest in buying the team, from Matt Damon and Dr. Dre to Oprah Winfrey. (Former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer ended up buying the team for a cool $2 billion.) In recent years, the playground of the super-wealthy has shifted locations. While you’ll still find these titans paying close attention to the happenings on the basketball court and the football field, the setting has gone virtual. Today’s celebrities and billionaires are placing their bets on esports teams. Exhibit A? Jerry Jones. As the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, Jones knows a thing or two about purchasing high-profile sports teams. In 2017, he bought a majority stake in compLexity Gaming, a North American esports franchise. The brand has continued its upward trajectory, partnering with beer brand Miller Lite and even teaming up with the U.S. Army for a “Soldier Showdown” tournament series. In 2016, the Kraft family (owners of the New England Patriots) became one of the very first investors in the Overwatch League, an international esports league launched by Activision Blizzard. With 20 city-based franchise leagues, it has brought home game fandom to the esports universe. In 2017, Stanley Kroenke and his son Josh (owners of the Los Angeles Rams) joined in to control the league’s second team in Los Angeles. Also, no stranger to traditional sports, basketball legend Shaquille O’Neal also threw his hat into the esports ring when he purchased stakes from NRG esports in 2016. Other notable investors in NRG include former baseball pros Alex Rodriguez and Jimmy Rollins, singer Jennifer Lopez, and legendary DJ and producer Tiesto. While not a household name in the U.S., Alisher Usmanov is one of the biggest names in the Russian business world. As an early investor in Facebook, an owner of stakes in Xiaomi and other telecoms, mining, and media companies, Usmanov is worth over $16 billion. In 2015, he invested $100 million into Virtus Pro. Usmanov invested wisely; the organization has players competing in Dota 2, Rainbow Six Siege, PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, Fortnite, Apex Legends, Starcraft II, and more, and its former Polish Golden Five CS: GO team is considered one of the best teams in the history of Counter-strike: Global Offensive. For years, esports organizers and players have pushed back against the idea that their events were “just video games” or childsplay. Over time, as events grew larger and attracted the attention of corporate sponsors, that perception has slowly started to change. With teams and leagues now getting backing from big names and huge money, those who have stood behind them are feeling validated...and esports is finally well on its way to being taken just as seriously as traditional sports by the big players in the sports and investment worlds.

Mark J. Beran was born the twin son of Emil and Alice Beran who then resided in the steel-driven town of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. By the time Mark was in the third grade, Emil and Alice packed up the family and moved to Warrington, Pennsylvania, a small suburban town outside Philadelphia. It would be in this town – in a small church yard – where Mark would find his love for the game that would impact his future.Mark translated this passion for golf into an education and a promising career by attending Ferris State University to major in Professional Golf Management. During his time at Ferris State, Mark completed internships at his home course Warrington Country Club, at Canoe Brook Country Club in Summit, New Jersey, and at the famed TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra, Florida. With these diverse internship experiences, Mark was very open to moving where he needed to in order to get a head start on his career as a PGA Professional.Mark graduated from Ferris State in 1988 and already had an Assistant Professional position lined up at Brick Landing Plantation in Ocean Isle Beach, North Carolina.

In this position, Mark started on a path, not only to make himself successful, but to also help others become successful in their own right. Mark had no problem hiring people from all walks of life. His female teaching professional was working at the local bagel shop and his Caddie Master was driving a bread route in New York City. Both are still in the business and doing very well. Others who worked with Mark are having success in their chosen career paths.After ten great seasons in Pomona, Mark made a return to the Middle Atlantic Section by accepting the Head Professional position at Woodholme Country Club in Pikesville, Maryland. Since 2005, Mark has been leading his staff and guiding future PGA Professionals to achieve their goals. Rudy Virga, PGA Mark’s longtime friend and former First Assistant is now the Director of Operations for Empire Golf Management. This is just one of many examples of how Mark’s mentoring has helped others succeed in golf and other professions.Mark then made the move to run his own golf academy at Black Horse Learning Center in White Hall, MD where he stayed for 3 seasons. While teaching, Mark also took on the role as the Travel Ambassador for Signature Golf Travel where he assisted his fellow professionals in the Middle Atlantic and Philadelphia PGA promote luxury golf trips to Scotland, Ireland and England. Mark is excited for the opportunity to now be able to bring all of this experience in the industry to Honey Run, where he looks forward to growing and developing the golf club while maintaining Honey Run as a place that golfers of all ages can enjoy. When Mark is not on the course, he loves to spend time with his wife of 20 years, Jill and their two teenage children, Spencer and Emily.
