Simons is another in a series of staff changes that began with the departure of Chairman Peter Cuneo, COO Gavin Cuneo, and CEO Dinesh Shamdasani after the acquisition of the company by DMG Entertainment (see "Top Three at Valiant All Gone"). Vice President-Marketing Hunter Gorinson left last month (see "Gorinson Ankles Valiant").
Under Publisher Fred Pierce, who told us at C2E2 that he’s not going anywhere, Valiant has also been adding new staff in the last month, including Joe Illidge as Executive Editor (see "Valiant Adds Joe Illidge"), Mel Caylo as Director of Marketing (see "Mel Caylo to Valiant"), and Karl Bollers as Editor (see "Valiant Hires Editor").
Today I am stepping away from my position at Valiant with nothing but the utmost pride and appreciation for what a fantastic experience this journey has been.— Warren Simons (@warrensimons) April 16, 2018
I want to thank all of the PHENOMENAL creators, staff, and most of all the Valiant fans for seven great years! pic.twitter.com/3FPcSM3cjM
