Virtus.pro revealed their new CEO, Aram Karamanukyan. The announcement came on his Twitter, reposted by Virtus.pro social media. A proper press release was postponed because of the military conflict between Armenia and Azerbaijan.
Additionally, Virtus.pro was removed from the list of ESforce Holding's assets. They still have control over the Russian website Cybersport.ru, broadcasting studio RuHub, tournament operator Epic Esports Events and other esports assets.
There's nothing to say about the new CEO as he seems to appear as not a public figure. Aram is supposedly an Armenian citizen. His Twitter is empty, while other social media reveal a lot of photos from Ibiza and, supposedly, other countries. He is speaking Armenian, Russian, and English fluently. Former CEO Roman Dvoryankin and other esports personalities don't know who Aram is.
The official press release by Virtus.pro came during the publication of this news. It states that Aram has experience in building and hotel infrastructures.
The club is under sanctions or forbidden to play in almost any international competition. Their most notable teams compete in Dota 2 and CS:GO under the neutral tag Outsiders. They also have lineups in PUBG Mobile, Warface, Free Fire, and Rainbow Six Siege.
