Check it out! Yesterday Evil Geniuses announced that they have been acquired by PEAK6 Investments LLC. With this change, Nicole LaPointe Jameson is going to be the new CEO of Evil Geniuses while Phillip Aram will stay on as the COO, focusing on EG’s competition performance.
As we all know, esports is an ever growing and evolving industry. It seems like something new and exciting has happened every time I check the news on my phone. According to EG’s announcement, they believe that Nicole is the perfect candidate for them at this time. She is reported to have a passion for esports and extensive business experience. This, combined with Phillip’s knowledge and expertise, could potentially result in some big things on the horizon. Personally, I think it will be interesting to see what other moves the company makes in the near future.
If you’ve got some burning questions that you don’t want to ‘wait and see’ on, the announcement also stated that they will be having an “Ask Me Anything” Q&A on Reddit today: “Nicole and Phil will be available for an AMA (“Ask Me Anything”) on /r/EvilGeniuses on Thursday, May 30 at 12PM PST / 3PM EST.”
So, if you have the time you can head there this afternoon to see what they say. Or, you can also check out the official announcement videos that EG released as well: Announcing A Partnership and Phil Goes To The Beach. In these videos, Nicole and Phillip talk about the reasons behind the partnership and touch on their plans for the future. They're also just pretty fun to watch, especially the second one.Before you go, don’t forget to check out the rest of our site for some new awesome gaming gear!
