Hello from the new Star Wars Brand Manager

 As Sarah mentioned last week, she has sadly left the company to pursue a new job.  So, I would like to introduce myself to you as the new manager of the Star Wars brand.  Wotc_greg was taken, so I went with wotc_bigguy since I'm 6'8" tall.  And no, I didn't play basketball in school.  I was a distance runner.  But enough about me.  I will try my best to be as active as Sarah was in the community, and I look forward to interacting with all of you and making your experience with Star Wars Minis and RPG's as good as possible.

Hey, let me be the first to say, welcome!  I will offer you any help I can and I look forward to your work!

Welcome! I'm glad to see you're interested in following in Sarah's footsteps as an active part of the online community.

It is nice to know you are going to be involved.  Sarah will be missed and certainly did some great things.  I am glad to see you are planning to continue a great relationship!!!

Hi Greg - thanks for the post and I wish you well in your new role! I know the SWM community is very interested in your and Peter's upcoming work. I can't say that I've ever seen such a devoted game community before so you can bet that folks will be there to assist whenever asked.


Bye for now,

You'll never find a more wretched hive of scum and villiany...


Welcome to SWM Tongue out.  Seriously, though, it's good to see the new brand manager interacting with the community already.  Here's to hoping it's a sign of good things to come.  Any chance you want to give us an early preview?

Hey Greg,
We're glad you're here.  Thanks for posting.  A few questions to get things started:


1. What is your favorite SWM piece?
2. What is your favorite Star Wars movie?
3. What is your name?  What is your quest?  What is your favorite color?  What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?


Seriously, welcome to the forums.  Laughing

Bienvenidos(Welcome) to our Asylum!!

Welcome, and thanks for introducing yourself.


I had a great working relationship with Sarah, and I hope that will continue with you. Feel free to contact me directly at any time.

HAHAHA!!! I am 6'7 and I always start off by saying that I didn't play basketball, I played baseball. Lol

Welcome! Yeah, 6'5 and get that question all the time. Volleyball here.

So, some of you asked about my background in gaming and how I came to be on Star Wars.  When I said I was the Brand Manager, I should have said that I manage the business which means that I create the strategy for the products and keep all the functions working together smoothly to meet that strategic direction.  The folks at Lucas manage the Star Wars brand, but I make sure that we put out the best Star Wars miniatures and Role-playing games possible to provide one of the most immersive Star Wars experiences for you guys.  I came to Wizards having spent most of my career in Brand Management at consumer packaged goods companies like Colgate and Nasbiso, but now, I'm putting my skills and experience to work in an area that is really close to my heart.  I've always loved games,  beginning with my love of Axis and Allies, Monopoly and Intellivision's Asteroids (that should date me a bit) when I was a kid. And for those who asked, my favorite Star Wars movie is Empire Strikes Back.  There's a lot going on here these days, but I'll try to regularly post both here and on the RPG forum. 


Oh, and someone asked about my favorite Star Wars figure.  I've only recently started playing the game, so I don't have a favorite yet, but my favorite character from the movies is Yoda.

Yoda is definitely a good start!

Playing Intellivision doesnt date you badly it just means like myself you have become distinguished.  Of course now if you were a Yankees fan that could be bad!!! LOL!!!

Welcome to the boards, Greg! Glad you're getting involved with the community! Help yourself to some Wookie cookies and a nice tall glass of bloomilk. Wink

Congratulations on the new job Greg and welcome!


Is there any chance you would be willing to share with us your plans for this SWM product in the short and long term?
