Returning to IDW, after a brief hiatus at Skybound Entertainment, is ex-Chief Creative Officer and Editor-In-Chief, Chris Ryall. He has returned as President, Publisher and Chief Creative Officer, something of a promotion for Ryall.
Speaking of his return and promotion, Ryall has this to say:
IDW is where I’ve spent the majority of my career, and I consider the company and its employees like family so I am grateful for this amazing opportunity to return. I believe that IDW has very significant opportunities to become even more valuable and important and I am excited to further expand on what I started with the company nearly 15 years ago. I am also eager to help the company celebrate its 20th year anniversary in 2019 in varied and creatively invigorating new ways.
Howard Jonas, Chairman, IDW Media Holdings, added:
Chris was a vital and valued member of the IDW team from nearly the beginning, so we are very excited that he is coming home. We are thrilled to have him rejoin our senior team to accelerate IDW Publishing’s growth and success. His creative talents and relationships within the industry are unmatched so we are confident that he will thrive in this new, expanded role.
Congratulations to Chris, who stared back with IDW this Monday December 10th. But, in further IDW related news, Greg Goldstein is stepping down from his role with IDW as Chris steps up:
