Doug Lombardi Leaves Valve After 22 Years

After spending 22 years at the company, Doug Lombardi has officially left Valve after most recently serving as the organization’s Vice President. At this time, Lombardi did not give a reason for his departure.

According to the Twitter user wickedplayer94, Kaci Aitchison will succeed Lombardi “as Valve’s new press contact for inquiries.” Before stepping into this role, Aitchison made a name for herself as an interviewer and backstage host at Valve’s flagship Dota 2 event, The International.

Doug Lombardi was a musician before beginning his relationship with Valve in 1998 when he started working as a brand manager for the first Half-Life game. After that, he joined Valve officially in 2000 where he was a staple for 22 years up until his departure this past February. During his time with the company, he managed and coordinated third-party relations, marketing, and press activities for all Steam games.
