IDW Welcomes Veteran Gaming Talent 
Sales Manager Comes Aboard IDW

San Diego, CA (March 13, 2014) – IDW Games is very pleased to announce that gaming industry veteran Kurt Nelson will be joining as Sales Manager.  Kurt’s primary role will be sales management for IDW Games as well as for mass-market initiatives such as IDW’s Micro-Comic Fun Pack brand.

“We are very excited to have Kurt join our growing team at IDW,” says Jerry Bennington, Director of Business Development. “Having previously worked with Kurt, he has a strong understanding of the gaming and collectibles category and will be a significant asset to our growth and stability.”

Kurt will be bringing with him over 16 year of sales management experience in the gaming industry. He has worked directly with some of the largest retailers and distributors both domestically and internationally and managed the distribution of one the most successful trading card games, Yu-Gi-Oh! From Upper Deck to Cryptozoic to GTS, Kurt has been an invaluable asset in the industry.

“I’m very excited to be part of the IDW team and having the opportunity to help build a gaming division that becomes a positive force in the industry,” says Kurt, “I’m especially looking forward to working closely again with Jerry and Ted Adams. They both played such a big part in my initial experience when I started in this industry 15 years ago.”

The first title from IDW Games, Kill Shakespeare is available to distributors now, so retailers can expect to hear from Kurt soon!

I'm 25 years old and I'm hugely passionate about comic books and I also LOVE gaming. The birth of my daughter, Abby, rekindled my passion for comic book stories. I grew up on them and I want nothing more than to share that passion with her! I'm a pretty typical guy, I love sports. (NHL-Blackhawks, NBA-Lakers, MLB-Cubs, and NFL-Daaaa Bears!). I've been writing for a pretty big portion of my life, and I've been nominated for multiple awards for some of the poetry I’ve written! Happy reading and follow me on Twitter @xJatmanx.
