Valiant Entertainment to expand global licensing reach with new appointment

Valiant Entertainment has appointed a new international licensing coordinator as the firm looks to expand its reach in the global marketplace and strengthen relationships with agents, publishing partners and its growing portfolio of licensees.

Oliver Taylor has moved into the position, marking his first foray into the comic industry. He joined the company as a sales intern in spring this year.

“Since he first arrived at Valiant, Oliver has made himself an indispensable part of the company’s day to day operations,” said Russell Brown, president of consumer products, promotions and ad sales.

“I am very excited to welcome him as a fully fledged member of our licensing team and I can’t wait to see what he will accomplish here.”

Taylor holds a degree in chemistry from New York University and has previous experience working at local and academic libraries.

“Comics have always played an integral role in my life and my bloodshot and X-O books are some of the most well-worn and well-loved books in my personal library,” said Taylor. “I am beyond excited to share with the world the stories and characters that only Valiant can create.”
