Meredith Placko has been appointed Chief Executive Officer of Steve Jackson Games, as longtime Steve Jackson executive Phil Reed steps back from his current role, the company announced. Placko comes to Steve Jackson from paint company Turbo Dork, where she was also CEO.
Reed, who became COO of Steve Jackson Games in 2008 and moved up to CEO in 2014, is cutting his time commitment to focus on health and personal work while still being available for the transition. He will also act as Art Director, continue to lead crowdfunding, and serve as a member of the company’s Senior Staff and Board of Directors. Reed joined the inaugural Community Advisory Council for Kickstarter last year
