The rebirth of Variety over the past decade under PMC has allowed us to thrive and grow across all media platforms,’ Littleton said. ‘Thanks to PMC’s investment, Variety’s editorial team has never been more ‘boffo.’ Ramin and I have worked closely together during the past few years, and we can’t wait to build on this strong foundation to add new dimensions to the Variety universe.’
