Oni’s former Operations Director George Rohac has been promoted to Director of Business Development, the company announced today. Rohac will relocate to the East Coast in order to pursue working with various Oni partners. Rohac joined the company in 2009.
“George has pushed the company since the day he arrived,” said Publisher, Joe Nozemack. “He spearheaded our scheduling initiative that hasn’t missed a ship date in over a year and helped work with every team to help revolutionize how we operated. He was also a key factor in establishing our relationships with Penny Arcade, Inc. and Double Fine Productions, Inc.”
“In mid 2011 he [George] started approaching me with ideas for titles and partners to reach out to. I let him go at it and he came back with creators and companies that we’re overjoyed to be working with.” said Editor-In-Chief, James Lucas Jones.
“Working at Oni Press has been a dream come true. The company and it’s staff are dedicated to seeing creators earn from their work, more than anyone else in the industry,” said the newly promoted Oni Press Director of Business Development. “While I will miss Portland, moving back to the East Coast will better assist my duties in developing new ways to make our creators and the company more profitable in the long term.”
