“We’re keeping the band together, and we couldn’t be happier about it,” CEO Bill Simmons said. “I’ve been working with Chris and Juliet since 2011 and then Sean and Mallory shortly after – it’s been fantastic to watch them blossom into leaders and creative forces. I would have never wanted to do this company without them. And Geoff came in 27 months ago and within a few weeks it felt like he’s been working with us since the Grantland days. He’s one of the smartest people I have ever worked with. It’s an incredible inner circle and the biggest reason why we’re going to keep growing and thriving.”
