Valiant Entertainment has announced that Managing Editor Robert Meyers has been promoted to Editorial Director, effective immediately. The news comes on the heels of the announcement of Joe Illidge joining as Executive Editor, and is part of an effort by the publisher to strengthen its editing team of Editor Karl Bollers and Editorial Assistants Benjamin Peterson and David Menchel.
Meyers first joined Valiant in 2013 as Operations Coordinator, and was named Managing Editor in 2016. Meyers holds a B.A. in Communications from University of California, San Diego; an M.A. in Media Studies, with a Certificate in Media Management from The New School.
Meyers will play an increased role in helping to shape the company’s publishing plan going forward, in addition to his editorial and operations responsibilities, which include, developing and editing new projects, creator outreach and recruitment, and working closely with the Sales and Marketing teams.
