On the IDW Publishing side, Mark Doyle was appointed to the position of Editorial Director of Originals. Doyle was Executive Editor at DC, where he served for 14 years, but was let go during a DC mass staff reduction in 2020 (see "DC Implosion - Major Staff Cuts"). DC's loss seems to be IDWP's gain, and in his new role, Doyle will be responsible for acquiring and developing original materials for comic books and GNs. He will also direct brand strategy for the Publishing team and lead editorial strategy for the division's original content portfolio.
On the IDW Entertainment side, Jonny Gutman was appointed the Vice President of Series and Cassie Conaway became the Director of Development.
