Vice Media marked the end of an era Tuesday as Shane Smith officially handed over the title of chief executive officer to Nancy Dubuc.
Smith, the co-founder of Vice and long the face of the millenial-focused brand, will move into the role of executive chairman “to focus on strategic deals and content development,” the company said in a press release.
In a statement, Smith praised Dubuc, most recently the CEO of A+E Networks, with whom he worked in launching Vice’s 24-hour television channel, Viceland.
“Why Nancy Dubuc? Simply put, because rarely in business do you get to work in a perfect partnership,” Smith said in a statement.
