Statement sheepy & UOLdad:
Today is a sad day for all unicorns,
our beloved manager Romain Bigeard will part with our organisation and will start a new adventure. He got one of those typical offers which “you cannot refuse”, and in this case we can say that it is genuine true.
Romain came to us in his pink onesie with a lot of ideas in his mind and no real clue how a LCS organisation operates. During the 2,5 years with UOL he learned quickly and became Mr. Unicorn himself, worked out all kind of brand supporting media projects, took over a lot of paperwork and was our backup at the front. With his energy and positive attitude he was the big motivator and won not only the hearts of all our fans but all people around. Beside all sadness we are personally proud that UOL was able to give our friend Romain the right environment to develop and grow as champion which finally made this huge step in his career possible. We wish him all the best, luck and a lot of fun in his new position.
With love, Sheepy and UOLdad
10 years ago I had no clue e-sports even existed. 5 years ago I was a SC2 fan rarely playing LoL. 3 years ago I would have never imagined what it meant to work for an e-sports team. 2 months ago I would have never imagined leaving UOL. And still, today I am quitting probably one of the best jobs in the world. It has been a wonderful experience working with such great people like Jos and Sheepy. A family-sized company like UOL allows you to work in different fields as they have a limited amount of employees to perform all the tasks. From business to management, from coaching to social media, I had the chance to learn and try a lot of things while being surrounded by smart people. For that I thank you all. I went all-in: breathing, thinking and living as a Unicorn. It was incredible. Today I am leaving UOL, to go on a new adventure and face new challenges. I received an offer of that kind you cannot refuse, and I will take it. It is a huge step for me, and I believe I am making the right move. I do apologize in advance to those this decision will disappoint. I now carry a heavy heart colored with wonderful memories. I won't cry because it is over, I will smile because it happened.
Thank you all, Romain
