Dark Horse Promotes Sean Brice to Director of Trade Sales

Sean Brice joined Dark Horse in 2013. Previously the senior trade sales manager, he administers the day-to-day relationship between Dark Horse’s trade sales team and the company’s distributor, Penguin Random House Publisher Services. Among other duties, he is responsible for providing accurate schedules, metadata, and sales and marketing deliverables to PRHPS, and is a vital member of the sales team representing Dark Horse to the book trade. He will maintain these responsibilities in his new position while taking a lead role in many new initiatives aimed at maximizing sales and expanding Dark Horse’s presence in the market.

Before his employment at Dark Horse, Brice worked in data analytics and market research. “I have always been fascinated by trends and how to use data to reach the right audience. As we see a boom in the number of books printed each year, it becomes increasingly important to use data to help differentiate titles and make them stand out in the crowd,” said Brice.

Sean graduated from The University of Oregon with a bachelor’s degree in business and marketing. He is an avid fan of pop culture and enjoys fishing and the outdoors in his free time.
