Coast to Coast Entertainment’s Jimmy Chaps (Chapman) sent out a heartfelt email from all at the company wishing to congratulate and thank longtime competitor — and friend — Tom Siemieniec, who has retired from his sales post at Bandai Namco.
Jimmy wrote: “I have known Tom for close to 29 years and I am both very happy and sad at the same time. The industry is losing a true professional, a man of extreme integrity and one of my dearest friends. I have traveled all over the country with Tom. When I first started, he and Frank Pellegrini took me under their wings to help me learn the ropes.”
