They had 3 different short time CEOs prior to Hicham (the norwegian CEO).
The one that I guess Fifflaren is referring to is Per Lilliefelth who was CEO between 2013-2015. I think the whole problem with NiP back in 2013 -> 2016 was that the management was skimming the org off of cash behind the backs of the players/crew. They only prioritized paying GTR and f0rest who were the two biggest stars at the time. Seems logical to me when you hear about Maikelele not getting 100% of sticker money, charity paypal account scam, players not getting paid, prize money missing. Sounds like blatant scam mentality to me. I 100% believe that the old CEOs had malicious intent and were just in it to skim the joint dry off cash. I'm just surprised the players stayed with the org through all of this and I blame GTR and f0rest for that. Pretty sure the org held them under strict contracts or bribed the shit out of them to make them stay put during these years. Pretty sure they would've looked for another org if all 5 agreed on it. Not surprised to see that only GTR and f0rest remain as ordinary NiP players either.
