PR in the jump.
Image Comics announces the expansion of its marketing and sales team. To help provide the most entertaining and original comic books on the market and further meet the needs of creators, retailers and readers, this reorganization includes new hire Betsy Gomez and a different focus for former PR and Marketing Coordinator Joe Keatinge.
Betsy Gomez will take over the position of PR and Marketing Coordinator. With more than 15 years of convention experience and 10 years of publishing experience, Gomez will assume responsibility for Image’s publicity, marketing and convention planning. Joe Keatinge will take on the new role of Image Comics’ Sales and Licensing Coordinator, focusing more specifically on direct and book market sales as well as Image’s foreign licensing.
“As Image Comics continues to grow, we have reorganized our marketing and sales staff to better facilitate our needs,” Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson said. “Having someone with Betsy’s extensive convention and publishing experience is a bonus. I look forward to working with her to make Image Comics even more successful!”
“I can’t reiterate enough how excited I am to be working for Image Comics!” exclaimed Gomez. “I’m thrilled to be part of the Image team! Image publishes some of my favorite comic books, and the chance to work for this remarkable company is phenomenal!”
Joe Keatinge added, “Having worked with Image for five years now, I highly anticipate this next step in the company’s growth. While I’m excited for my new role, I am especially ecstatic to have Betsy on board. Her wealth of experience makes her an extremely valued addition to the Image Comics team.”
