Archie Comics Announces New Management Team
Archie Comic Publications, Inc. issued a press release today, announcing promotions:
Victor Gorelick was upped to Co-President/Editor-In-Chief and Fred Mausser named Co-President/Director of Circulation. Michael Pellerito was named Vice President/Managing Editor. In addition to running the day-to-day operations of Archie Comic Publications, Inc., the new management team will review all areas of the company’s properties and operations in order to broaden the legacy of Archie Comics as a leader in the field of humor and family friendly entertainment for untold decades to come.
The moves were expected in the wake of Archie Chairman Michael Silberkleit’s death on August 5.
Gorelick and Mausser indicated they are extremely confident in the continuing success of these true American icons (Archie, Betty, Chuck, Jughead, Veronica and Friends), and are developing plans to bring additional projects to fruition in the near future. The potential of the Archie Comics’ stable of properties has never been brighter.
“We’re very thankful for the trust placed in us by the Estates of Richard Goldwater and Michael Silberkleit. We’re also extremely confident in the future of Archie and his Friends and will strive to bring these properties to new heights,” stated Gorelick, Mausser and Pellerito at a recent office presentation.
