Mark Deppe
Executive Director
National Association of Collegiate Esports (NACE)

Mark led the effort to create the award-winning esports program at University of California Irvine (UCI). Working closely with student leaders, administrators, faculty, and industry partners, Mark built a business plan that was both cost-neutral to the university and that broadly approaches the world of esports through the five pillars of Competition, Research, Community, Entertainment, and Careers. Mark was selected to serve as the inaugural commissioner for the North America Scholastic Esports Federation, helping connect learning to student interests.
