D&Q hires Salomon as controller


D&Q sends out a personnel related press release and is thoughtful enough to include a Julie Doucet panel to illustrate it!

Effective immediately, Jamie Salomon has been hired as Controller, announced Chris Oliveros, Editor-In-Chief and Publisher, Drawn & Quarterly. Salomon has overseen D+Q’s finances for the past five years while employed at the chartered accounting firm Rabinovitch Luciano in Montreal. At D+Q, Salomon will direct all financial reporting and accounting operations.

“As D+Q has grown from a comic book company to a book company in the past decade, our financial reporting needs have increased. Jamie has been our most valuable behind-the-scenes player in this process,” said Oliveros. “Furthermore, his genuine appreciation and knowledge of the comic book medium makes him an integral part of the D+Q team in understanding why we do what we do.”

Salomon graduated from McGill University with a Bachelors of Commerce. He was the publisher and editor of Copacetic Comics & Crunchy Comics, a freelance tax accountant, and translation consultant.
