Former president and COO of Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment, Steve Pamon, has secured a new position.
According to a press release, Verzuz and Triller have appointed Pamon as the President of Verzuz. Under the new title, the executive will oversee the operations of global business including go-to-market and production. In addition, Pamon will manage logistical operations for Verzuz such as contracts, sponsors, venues, programming, live events, and partnerships.
“Steve is the proverbial triple threat. His exceptional track record and reputation across Parkwood Entertainment, the NFL, and HBO, delivering global entertainment innovation, and his devotion to respect and lift culture makes his stewardship of the Verzuz brand the perfect match,” Triller CEO Mahi de Silva said in a press statement. “Verzuz is a cultural phenomenon and Steve’s leadership is a perfect complement to Swizz Beatz and Timbaland, who continue to curate the iconic Verzuz events. Steve will accelerate the Verzuz platform to new heights.”
Verzuz Will Expand Under New Leadership
“Under his purview, Verzuz will maintain its undying support of artists, the global creative community, and the culture,” a press release stated. “The entrepreneurial and independent spirit remains central to its progression as the business expands.

A Statement From Swizz Beatz And Timbaland:
“Verzuz was born in the culture, and it thrived because it believed in it. Steve showed the culture nothing but respect from our first conversations. He understood what Verzuz meant to the millions of viewers who made it what it is, and he wanted to preserve the same energy and magic. This is another beginning for Verzuz.”
