Paradox Interactive CEO Resigns Over Strategy Concerns
Crusader Kings 3Released by paradox InteractiveThe CEO will be retiring in 2020. The paradox is experiencing some major changes, despite its popularity among gamers.
Paradox Interactive CEO Ebba Ljungerud has stepped down from her duties with the company effective immediately. Ljungerud will still work for the company, despite her resignation, according to an official statement. This is done to ensure that the leadership transition goes smoothly and minimize any impact on the other members of the team.
Ljungerud’s resignation as CEO of Paradox Interactive was apparently due to her opinions differing from the company’s strategy for the future. According to the official statement, there was a cordial departure between the parties. This could lead to the “good over” that Paradox Interactive is expecting. Paradox Interactive’s strategy may be changing, but neither the company Chairmen nor Ljungerud has suggested the new strategy.
Hakan Sjunnesson (Chairman of Paradox Interactive’s Board) said that the company regretted Ljungerud’s departure. Sjunnesson released a statement saying that Ljungerud’s leadership had helped strengthen the company, its player base and the game projects. This gives the company a solid foundation for future growth. Ljungerud was only complimented in the company’s official statement. We wish her all the best for whatever she does next.
Ljungerud, despite her departure from Paradox Interactive’s role, has significantly taken Paradox Interactive to new heights since its inception in 1998. Ljungerud was a key figure in bringing some of the company’s major strategy games to console. She also introduced Victoria 3 and launched Crusader Kings 3. Paradox Interactive’s 2020 release was a sequel to the Crusader Kings. However, it was still able to reach a wider audience.
Fredrik Wester will take over Ljungerud’s CEO duties moving forward. Although Western has taken over the role of CEO, it is expected that Ljungerud will continue to work with him to bring him up to speed. Paradox’s CEO for many years, Wester, resigned in 2018, just as Surviving Mars was released. To retake his CEO role, Wester has been elected Chairman of the Board.
The new leadership may surprise company fans. Players may not notice any changes in their favourite games because Fredrik Wester and Fredrik Ljungerud are working to a smooth transition of power.
