Ailen Lujo has joined Humanoids as its new Director of Sales and Marketing, as reported by Publisher’s Weekly. Lujo comes to Humanoids after nine years with DC, including the past three years as its Executive Director of Book, Mass Sales, and Trade Marketing.
At Humanoids, she will oversee the company’s English-language comic distribution, sales, and marketing – both in print and digital. She replaces Jud Meyers, who worked in the position from December 2017 to April 2019.
During her nine years at DC, Lujo was part of the launch of DC’s age-based imprints DC Ink, DC Zoom, and DC Black Label.
Lujo’s hiring is reportedly part of a larger restructuring of Humanoids’ sales and marketing department. Included in this shift is the promotion of Harley Salbacka to Sales Representative, and the hiring of Andrea Torres as Sales and Marketing Assistant.
