Valiant Entertainment has hired Emily Hecht as Sales & Social Media Manager.

As Sales Manager, Hecht will continue to manage relationships with comic book retailers, a position she previously fulfilled as a freelancer. As Social Media Manger, she will create content and build relationships with retailers, fans, and media representatives.

“I am very pleased to welcome Emily on board in a full-time capacity,” said Matthew Klein, Director of Sales. “She has been one of the strongest additions to the Sales team and has forged many great relationships with retailers.”

“Emily showed a tremendous aptitude for managing social media in some of her previous positions, so I was excited to offer her oversight of Valiant’s platforms,” said Mel Caylo, Director of Marketing. “Plus, much of what she does in her role in Sales overlaps into social media, so it’s perfect synergy.”

Hecht graduated from Harvard University, has a background in acting as well as experience in social media and marketing management. She worked as Operations Manager for Carmine Street Comics in New York City and worked as a table assistant for several artists at comic conventions.

Valiant also hired a new Editor (see “Valiant Hires Lysa Hawkins”) and Director of Sales (see “Valiant Hires Director of Sales”) this summer.
