This personnel announcement is effective immediately and it comes from the companyís EVP, Charlie Colombo along with the companyís SVP/Content & Affiliation, Stefan Jones.

Itís really rare to find someone able to see the whole picture the way he can, and we couldnít be happier that heís now part of the United Stations team.Ē Danny Ocean added, "Iím thrilled and excited to be joining the gold standard of companies as a member of the United Stations team. I would like to personally thank Nick Verbitsky, Charlie Colombo, Jim Higgins, Andy Denmark and Stefan Jones for believing in me and giving me this amazing opportunity."
