Having fielded five teams in the world of esports in games such as CS:GO, Overwatch, Vainglory, Smash and League of Legends, the Immortals have expanded their front office even further. The Immortals announced on their official website that Nick Phan would take over as the new General Manager.

"Immortals is continually dedicated to setting a new standard in building a healthy, sustainable organization. Part of this is having capable management who can work with players, coaches, and staff to create this environment for the Immortals organization as a whole."

Nick's last adventure was with Team Liquid where he was the General Manager there. Don't expect Nick to pick favorites within the Immortals as he wants to help every single team out, not just one. "My work won’t be focused on just the League team." Nick said. "My overall goal is to help spur success for these teams."  

According to Nick, one of the biggest keys for the Immortals is the plan they have set ahead for them. "After getting to know the staff, I think there’s a clear vision alignment. We want to make Immortals one of the most engaging organizations and franchise that esports has seen. A lot of that comes from maintaining integrity with players and staff. We want to make this one of the healthiest environments across all boards: emotional, physical, and mental."

The Immortals have a very strong staff led by Noah Whinston, the Immortals CEO who was recently named to Forbes 30 Under 30 in the Games category. "Successful esports organizations are the ones best able to balance the needs of their players with the needs of their business. Nick’s experience in creating a healthy culture between players, staff, and organization is integral to the long-term health of Immortals," said Whinston.
