CCP employees aren't allowed to disclose their identities if they're playing in-game. CCP Rise was formerly known as Kil2, so he can't play as Kil2 anymore, but as CCP Rise (officially). I'm pretty sure there's a way for CCP employees to play the game as regular people, but those accounts are watched by the CCP Internal Affairs team to make sure nothing sneaky is going on.

As to why this is the case, a former dev, CCP T20, spawned Tech 2 blueprint originals for his alliance. T2 BPOs allow players to create T2 items for cheaper than the alternative process everyone else has to do (called invention, now the only way to create T2 items aside from existing T2 BPOs).
