Jack Newcombe named President and COO of Creators

Jack Newcombe has been named as president and chief operating officer of Creators Syndicate replacing his father Rick as president. Rick will continue to serve as CEO and chairman of the board.

From the press release:

For the past two years, Jack has served as executive vice president/general manager of the third-largest syndicate in the country, during which time he has overseen the company’s transition from a print-oriented business to an organization focused on new media and online enterprises, in addition to its traditional sources of revenue.

In the past year, Creators Syndicate has fully automated and consolidated its content delivery service and greatly expanded its Web presence while continuing to keep the personal touch in sales and customer relations that is the company’s hallmark. Jack implemented a new corporate culture and reorganized the company in order to improve communication and foster a better sense of “team,” giving autonomy to the editorial and accounting departments while taking a hands-on approach to the business development, operations and marketing departments. In the coming years, Creators Syndicate will continue to expand while maintaining the flexibility and creativity that have allowed it to thrive in today’s media marketplace.

Other changes include promoting David Yontz to the position of managing editor.
