Official Press Release
Comics retailer Things From Another World (TFAW) is proud to announce the promotion of Andrew McIntire, formerly Director of Marketing, to Senior Director of Retail Operations. Amongst his initial key tasks will be the review of existing processes across the company and, where appropriate, revising operational policies to better synchronize TFAW’s retail operations with the changing face of the industry.
“Andrew has been a key factor in the ongoing success of Things From Another World.” said TFAW CFO Tom Weddle, “During his tenure, he has continually impressed us with his forward-thinking ideas and genuine enthusiasm for the industry as a whole.”
McIntire will continue to direct the marketing and sales efforts of TFAW and, in addition, will be assuming management of the day-to-day retail operations of the company. This will begin with creating new procedures and policies in preparation for the changes in Diamond’s distribution model that will take effect in January.

Christiansen has been promoted to the position of Marketing Manager – Customer Loyalty and Retention, and Forsythe is the new Marketing Manager – Community Events and Outreach.
