Jud Meyers, whose promotion to Publisher at IDW Publishing was announced just last week (see "New President, Publisher, EVP at IDW Publishing"), has been placed on administrative leave.  The company made the announcement to employees at a company town hall last Friday.  In his role as Publisher, Meyers was in charge of editorial, sales, and creative services.

Meyers' promotion was announced in conjunction with the announcement of Jerry Bennington’s promotion to President and Rebekah Cahalin's promotion to General Manager and EVP of Operations for both IDW Publishing and IDW Entertainment.  Those moves were made as a result of the departure of Chris Ryall as President, Publisher, and Chief Creative Officer (see "President, Publisher, and CCO Chris Ryall Departing IDW").
