BOOM! Studios Announces New Staff Promotions
BOOM! Studios has announced that it has promoted two key employees in Marketing and Sales teams following a historic year in which the company saw its best-selling original series premiere, launched the most successful comics Kickstarter campaign of all time, published several highly acclaimed original graphic novels, earned three Eisner Award nominations, delivered industry-leading on-time shipping (98%), and secured a first-look deal with Netflix for live-action and animated television shows alongside a series order from Disney+ for Just Beyond.
These promotions include the following:
Esther Kim has been promoted to Marketing Lead:
Esther joined the company in 2018, bringing with her experience from comic book retail at the nationally recognized Fantom Comics in Washington, D.C. as well as a stint at Image Comics. In her two years with BOOM! Studios, Esther has taken on a lead role in the company’s publicity efforts, resulting in effusive praise from numerous of the company’s creative partners and more regular coverage in a diverse array of media and news outlets.
Morgan Perry has been promoted to Retail Sales Lead:
Morgan joined the company in 2017 and has been a critical part of growing the company’s business in the direct (comic book shop) market. Not only has Morgan launched and overseen the BOOM! Guarantee program for retailers, which set the standard for retailer support and returnability programs, but she was a critical player in the company leading the way in retailer support in 2020. This was perhaps best exemplified by the comprehensive “safe service” shopping map she assembled that received coverage in the New York Times.
