Quentin Schaffer, HBO’s Corporate PR Chief, to Exit Next Month After 39 Years

He will leave five months after CEO Richard Plepler stepped down

Quentin Schaffer, HBO’s longtime head of corporate communications, is leaving the network after 39 years. He will depart next month.

“HBO has been an amazing place to work alongside the brightest and most creative people I’ve ever come across, particularly the communications team. What made it special was that we always had an enviable slate of programming to work with.  In looking back, I feel lucky to have had the greatest temporary job in the business. For 39 years,” Schaffer said. “With Kevin now here, the team is in good hands and I can feel comfortable moving on.”
