Fully Integrated Media Company Expands to Meet Growing Presence in Marketplace
IDW Publishing has named Steven Scott as their new PR Manager, who will be responsible for overseeing the company’s public outreach and social media strategies. Scott joins the ranks of IDW after his most recent stint as PR Manager for the San Francisco-based tech startup, Humble Bundle. During that time, Scott led several successful publicity campaigns for a wide variety of digital content bundles for video games, e-books, and digital comics including IDW’s Transformers and My Little Pony series.
In addition to working closely with some of the most universally recognized brands and licenses in pop culture, Scott has taken point on promotions for such renowned creators as Neil Gaiman, Grant Morrison, Stan Lee, Kevin J. Anderson, and Star Trek’s George Takei.
Scott previously served as Director of Publicity and Marketing for Archie Comics from 2012 until 2014. Prior to that, Scott trained at Marvel Comics as an editorial intern and was accepted into Brian Michael Bendis’ graphic novel writing course at Portland State University.
“2015 was a HUGE year for IDW, with our continued expansion into Games and Entertainment, the opening of the San Diego Comic Art Gallery, not to mention our always aggressive and diverse publishing slate,” said IDW’s VP of Marketing Dirk Wood. “We’re thrilled to have Steven Scott on the team. His experience is critical at this juncture, because 2016 will be even bigger.”
“Joining the team at IDW has been a dream of mine since before I got my start in comics,” added newly minted PR Manager Steven Scott. “Coming to work in a place each day that’s teeming with creativity is exactly why I wanted to get into this business to begin with and IDW has that in spades. I can’t tell you how excited I am to be a part of this publisher that I’ve admired for so long.”
