Official Press Release
DC Comics is pleased to announce that Anton Kawasaki has been named Assistant Manager - Marketing Publications, continuing to report to Patty Jeres, Director - Events & Marketing Communications.
"Anton not only has shown himself to be an inventive and diligent writer, which is no mean feat when you're creating literally hundreds of pages of text every month," says Jeres. "He's also wonderfully level headed, no matter what kind of deadline crunch we're facing."
Anton joined DC's Direct Sales department in May, 2000, as Representative - Marketing Communications, with the primary responsibility of generating text for DC's DIRECT CURRENTS section in Previews, as well as the text for Diamond Dialogue, articles for Diamond Dateline, and more. Since that time, Anton has assumed additional several responsibilities involving artwork used in DIRECT CURRENTS and the dccomics.com ADV site.
"This is a real honor," says Anton. "It's gratifying to be recognized this way, and I'm looking forward to the challenges this new position represents."
