NiP makes major management changes
The Ninjas in Pyjamas have revealed that among other changes, CEO Per Lilliefelth has been removed from his position.
In a shocking press release, the Sweden-based Ninjas in Pyjamas have revealed that they will be radically restructuring their corporate management team after recent criticism towards the organization, including claims that NiP owes their CS:GO roster thousands of dollars in prize money and salaries. Most notably, Per Lilliefelth, Chief Executive Officer of Ninjas in Pyjamas Gaming AB, will step down from his position. While they search for a replacement, Patric Jönsson will serve as the interim CEO.
NiP had the following to say about the changes:
The owners of Ninjas in Pyjamas recognized the organizational changes as necessary. It is time to bring in new people with more suitable properties, skills and experience to lead Ninjas in Pyjamas in the future. The business and industry has changed, it is time to take it to the next level.
As a result of the changes Per Lilliefelth will part ways with Ninjas in Pyjamas and leave his position as CEO with immediate action. We thank Per for his work during his time at Ninjas in Pyjamas Gaming AB. Patric Jönsson has been appointed as the interim CEO for Ninjas in Pyjamas Gaming AB starting as of today. Patric has long experience leading several companies across different sectors, most notably he has been the CEO of Xtrfy since inception and is also the CEO of Trigono AB, a large IT and Gaming distributor based in Sweden. We welcome Patric on board and we are excited about the experience he brings to our brand and company.”
