Andrew Berkshire stepping down from managing Eyes on the Prize

New, comments

I'll always be around in some form or another, but no longer as manager. Marc Dumont is the man now.

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

After nearly three years managing Eyes on the Prize, and five years as an editor, it's time for me to move on to new challenges. For the last several months, I have been consulting for a local company in Montreal called Sportlogiq, and after a generous offer, I have decided to begin working there full time.

Sportlogiq is an up-and-coming analytics company using video recognition software to track data in a way previously thought not possible. Working with Christopher Boucher, I'll be developing the editorial side of the company as managing editor.

I'll be around for the rest of the summer, but from this moment on, Marc Dumont is the man in charge of Eyes on the Prize, and we'll be looking internally and externally for a co-manager to help him out when September comes.

Most, if not all, of my future writing will be for Sportlogiq, however I will still be doing the Ice Level podcast with Conor McKenna and Robyn Flynn, which returns July 7th, though we will be taking a hiatus during August, to return in September for weekly episodes.

Over the last three years, it's been a joy to work for SB Nation, especially for Travis Hughes. Growing this site from about 80,000 pageviews per month to 1.2 million has been an amazing experience. In many ways, EOTP feels like a child I've raised, but I'm more than confident in Marc's leadership going forward, and the amazing stable of writers and editors we've built together.

The Eyes on the Prize community is considerably stronger now than when I started here, what we've created together is only going to continue to grow and prosper. I'm sincerely thankful to every writer who has ever shared this site with me, and I'm excited to see where the site goes now.

The official Sportlogiq editorial section will be launching any day now, so I hope most of you have another slot in your bookmarks for, but the premier Montreal Canadiens content in the world will continue to be hosted at Eyes on the Prize.
