Nicole LaPointe Jameson, CEO of the prominent esports organization Evil Geniuses, is stepping down from her role at the company following a four-year tenure marked by both victory and controversy.

Previously an associate at the private equity firm PEAK6, LaPointe Jameson was elevated to CEO of Evil Geniuses when PEAK6 acquired the storied esports org in May 2019. Under her leadership, the brand successfully brought on brand partners such as Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Thunderpick by adopting a more diversity- and equity-centric branding. LaPointe Jameson was the first Black woman to lead a major esports organization, and helped push Evil Geniuses to sign a mixed-gender “Valorant” squad in 2021.

As of today, LaPointe Jameson is no longer involved in Evil Geniuses’ day-to-day operations, but she will remain on staff for the next two weeks to aid in the transition in an advisory role. Chris DeAppolonio, who previously served as Evil Geniuses’ chief innovation officer, is stepping in as the organization’s interim CEO. Before joining Evil Geniuses in August 2020, DeAppolonio spent stints as a president or partnerships executive for esports brands such as the Houston Outlaws, OpTic Gaming and Obey Alliance.
