Valiant has promoted Robert Meyers from Editorial Director to Senior Editorial Director, the company announced. The announcement comes on the heels of the news that Joe Illidge is no longer Executive Editor for the company (see “Valiant Adds Joe Illidge”).
Meyers initially joined Valiant in early 2013, serving as a marketing and editorial intern before taking on the role of operations coordinator. He parted ways with the company in late 2014, taking other positions, including a stint as managing editor at Double Take. He returned to Valiant as managing editor in mid-2016 and was promoted to editorial director earlier this year (see “Valiant Promotes Robert Meyers”).
Information on why Illidge is no longer with Valiant is sparse. Illidge, who joined Valiant earlier this year after leaving Lion Forge, updated his social media accounts to list Valiant as a former employer.
Valiant has undergone a number of changes in the last year, with the departures of several executive-level staff and several transitions and additions in the marketing and sales departments (see “ICv2 Interview: The New Valiant Management Team”), including the departure of Atom! Freeman and promotion of Matthew Klein to VP of Sales & Marketing (see “Valiant Promotes Matthew Klein to VP of Sales & Marketing”).
