Joel Pett Retires … as CRNI President

The CRNI is announcing that:

After some fifteen years in the role Joel Pett – multi-award winning editorial cartoonist for the Lexington Herald Leader – has decided to retire from the Presidency of Cartoonists Rights Network International’s board of directors.

Mr Pett’s decision comes six months on from the retirement from active duties of CRNI’s founder and executive director Dr Robert “Bro” Russell. Like him, Mr Pett will remain on the board of directors to ensure our organization continues to benefit from his experience and good counsel.

Going forward CRNI’s efforts will be spearheaded by new President Matt Wuerker – cartoonist in residence and founding staff member at POLITICO, Washington DC – and Terry Anderson – hitherto Dr Russell’s deputy and based in Glasgow, Scotland – as Executive Director.

The CRNI thanks Joel and welcomes Matt here.
