Alliance Game Distributors and Diamond Comic Distributors Senior Marketing Manager Phyllis Opolko passed away on March 4th after a long illness. Opolko worked for many years at Avalon Hill Game Company (before its acquisition by Wizards of the Coast) and joined Alliance in 1999. She led the team that created Alliance’s Game Trade Magazine 12 years ago. Opolko also did marketing work for sister company Diamond.
"Phyllis was a rare combination – creative and detail oriented, forward thinking yet focused on the finer points," a statement by the companies said. "Her fingerprints could be seen on our Open Houses, Retailers Summits, and events; on our Website, our social media, and most clearly on our hearts."
