Tom Doherty Associates is pleased to announce (and, you know, Tor.com is not unbiased here!) that effective immediately, Irene Gallo is promoted to Vice President, Publisher of Tor.com! In this newly created role, Irene will be fully dedicated to the Tor.com website and imprint.
Irene joined Tor Books twenty-six years ago and quickly rose to head the Art Department. She has won the World Fantasy Award, the Richard Gangel Award for Art Direction from the Society of Illustrators, thirteen Chesley Awards, and numerous gold and silver medals from Spectrum and the Society of Illustrators.
Irene was also one of the founding members of the Tor.com website. In its first decade Tor.com has become a must-read site for science fiction and fantasy fans, and one of the most frequented publishing websites. Tor.com has won numerous awards for its original fiction, nonfiction, and art, including the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, and Locus Awards.
Irene has also been instrumental in the creation and launch of the Tor.com imprint. In its four years of publishing it has won multiple Hugo, Nebula, Locus, World Fantasy, and Alex Awards.
Please join us in congratulating Irene and thanking her for her decades of dedication and creativity. We look forward to watching Tor.com continue to thrive and grow under her focused direction. (Congrats, boss!)
