Geoff Gerber, President of Lion Forge since late 2015 (see "Lion Forge Staffs Up"), has left the company, a Lion Forge spokesperson confirmed.  The departure took place in August.  David Steward II (see "ICv2 Interview: Lion Forge CEO David Steward II") remains CEO of the company.

Since Gerber joined the company in late 2015 (after serving as outside counsel), it has staffed up for comics and graphic novel publishing, sales, and marketing and is now apparently entering a new phase.

"With growth comes change," the company said in a statement.  "As Geoff departs the company, we wish him well in his next endeavor, as we carry Lion Forge into the future to greater success in publishing and entertainment."

Gerber has formed Anchorplate IP, a new consultancy devoted to helping "publishers and creators seeking to leverage intellectual property to ‘geek culture’ audiences," according to his LinkedIn page.
