Nick van den Berg (or Bergh) replaced Eeden Barlow as chairman of Executive Outcomes after Barlow's resignation.

Sandline described his role in the ill-fated attempt to re-open the Bougainville Copper mine as being "the leader of the team sub-contracted from EO to undertake some of the work in Papua New Guinea." [1] He and Tim Spicer were arrested and held captive by the PNG military who rebelled when the mercenary operation became known about.
