Lean Mean Marvel Machine Sacks Two Executives

Redundancies are redundant.

Marvel Comics is known to run a notoriously tight ship, and they show no signs of stopping, as they let go two executives over the weekend, Executive Vice President and General Manager Peter Philips and Vice President of Digital Products Kristin Vincent.

Philips joined the company in 2011 as a Senior Vice President/General Manager and was promoted to Executive Vice President and General Manager in 2013, where he ran the whole digital media division, developed mobile/console/PC gaming franchises, and the content distribution division, distributing TV, film and original video across digital and physical platforms.

Vincent, Philips' number two, was appointed as Vice President of Digital Products in 2011. She has worked on Marvel Unlimited subscriptions, Marvel insider loyalty programmes, the Marvel kids website, and Marvel's Augmented Reality App.

Marvel is well-known for its executive changes, with COO Jim Sokolowski removed in 2011, Digital & Marketing SVP John Dokes let go in 2012, followed by SVP/Associate Publisher Ruwan Jayatilleke in 2013.

Word on the street is that Editor-In-Chief Axel Alonso or Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing David Gabriel could be next on the chopping block. Wishful thinking.
