Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the expansion of their company into a branch office located in the Flatiron District of Manhattan. Located at 27th Street and 5th Avenue, the office will initially host current Dynamite team members local to New York City, with the objective of growing the business with additional hires in the metropolitan area.
Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment, says, “This is a huge step for Dynamite, opening a new office and expanding our operations. We’re now closer to our partners and closer to the creative community. It’s a very exciting time to be a part of Dynamite.”
Named for the 1902 skyscraper whose Beaux-Arts three-facade design presides over the intersection of Fifth Avenue and Broadway, the Flatiron District is a haven for well-known design, photography, clothing, and stationery stores, styled with cast-iron architecture. The area is also home to Madison Square Park, a green oasis that hosts concerts, readings and public art exhibitions.
Dynamite’s expansion into the Flatiron District finds them in good company, as the area is home to prominent publishers including The Macmillan Publishing Group. With continued growth of their product categories and the recent addition of editorial and production staff members, Dynamite’s establishment of a satellite office in New York City reflects the continued rise of a leading comic book and graphic novel publisher. Fans, retailers, and industry professionals are encouraged to follow Dynamite Entertainment’s official social media channels for the latest updates.
