    Paradox Advent Calendar #13

    This person needs no further introduction to most of you. One of the most accessible CEO's in the business, Fred has been the main driving force behind the company you know as Paradox Interactive today. Read his blog: http://www.paradoxplaza.com/thewesterfront and follow him on Twitter @thewesterfront

    Name: Fredrik Wester [Fredrik II]
    Paradox role: CEO
    What I enjoy most about my work: Looking at new games and planning ahead
    Little known fact: Used to speak quite good Japanese after studying Japanese in Sapporo
    Weird talent: Knows the lyrics to all Metallica songs up to the album “Load”
    Best Paradox moment: Releasing Hearts of Iron 2 under our own publishing label was great
    Family secret: My two sons are named after two of the fighting kings in the Hundred Years War (Edward and Ludwig, the latter being German/Swedish for Louis) after my wife vetoed Richard (after R. Plantagenet)

    Yes...and a very honest one also. I remeber reading a interview with him. And he really gave nice insights into the company, also admitted that and how mistakes were made...and explained why. Really lovely to see, that he is so differnt from other CEO´s.

    Paradox is now a successful and well known company.....one that doesnt have to fear the really big fishes in the pond. I wish Paradox, his CEO, and all who work for Paradox the best.....and hope they never stop to make the games for which they have become famous.

    P.S.: He seems to be a big soccer fan. Nice.

    What would you have named your daughter? Elizabeth / Victoria? Did the game 'Victoria' get this name because you didn't get to name any daughters (yet)?

    P.S. the Wester Front should really be mentioned.

    Careful, or He will change your Forum nick to Rebecca and then you'll be known as: "The Scripter named Rebecca."

    Do you have a favourite team or are you rather a general connoisseur of the fine art that is football?
