Last Wednesday it was announced that IDW Publishing President/Publisher/Chief Creative Officer Chris Ryall was leaving the company. Shortly after, the company announced new internal promotions including Jud Meyers from Sales Director to Publisher.
Now days later, Meyers has been placed on administrative leave. IDW CEO Ezra Rosensaft said this in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter.
“IDW Publishing has decided to put Jud Meyers on administrative leave. President Jerry Bennington will assume his responsibilities as interim publisher at this time.”
Before joining IDW in 2019, Meyers worked as director of sales and marketing at Humanoids. He also worked as a comic book retailer with Blastoff Comics and Earth-2 Comics.
