New CEO At Archie, But Familiar Name: Jon Goldwater Buys Ownership Interest
In what has turned out to be a very good week for sons adopting the mantles of father, Jon Goldwater, son of Archie comics empire co-founder John Goldwater and brother to the late, longtime company-runner Richard Goldwater, will take over as Archie Comics Company CEO. He also purchased an unspecified ownership interest. Goldwater plans to aggressively push the company's various properties over what looks to be just about any medium that can use them. Johanna Draper Carlson, who follows Archie much more closely than I do, has an initial reaction here.
