Rix.GG, a top UK and EU esports organisation, a subsidiary of X1 Esports and Entertainment, announces CEO and founder, Jamie Lewis, will step down as CEO.
Jamie Lewis founded Rix.GG, a UK esports organisation focused on the development of local talent, during the UK’s first lockdown in July 2020. Lewis set out to create a player-first esports organisation with a strong focus on elevating UK talent through grassroots events. He has been a critical part of the organisation’s first year of growth.
Entrepreneur Jamie Lewis will step down as Rix.GG’s CEO to give him the opportunity to explore new ventures in business and marketing.
Jamie Lewis, founder and CEO, said: “Rix.GG has been one of the most important arcs of my career to date; the stories we wrote, the people we’ve met, and the lessons we’ve learned. I am standing down with a heavy heart, but overwhelming pride with what we have achieved in a short time.
I have every faith in the new CEO to do an excellent job of leading one of the most dedicated and talented groups of staff a leader could ask for. They have the tools required to help push Rix.GG into a top tier organisation and I look forward to celebrating from the perspective of a fanboy shareholder at future LANs.
Looking forward, I will spend the next months considering an overwhelming number of projects and clients and debating where I might be able to add the best value. Until that decision is made I will have limited availability for consultation.
I will always be the founder of Rix.GG, and I will wear that title with pride and the desire to ensure our organisation is forever invested in grassroots esports, champions the underdog at every opportunity, and tries to do the right thing by all in every situation.”
Rix.GG appointed a new CEO and the official announcement will be tomorrow.
