Anderson Promoted, King of Surf!
Charlie Anderson Promoted To Publisher Of TransWorld SURF

TransWorld Media, a division of Bonnier Corporation, is pleased to announce that Charlie Anderson has been promoted to Publisher of TransWorld SURF. Anderson previously served as the Associated Publisher for TransWorld SURF. In his new role, Anderson will be in charge of all advertising and marketing opportunities for advertising clients within TransWorld SURF’s magazine, online, events, and video properties. 
 
Anderson began his tenure at TransWorld Media in 1995 as the sales manager. During that time, Anderson helped launch TransWorld SURF. He then left TransWorld to pursue other interest within the industry, working with companies such as DC and Dragon, only to return “home” to TransWorld in 2007 as the Associate Publisher for TransWorld SURF. “Every day I am amazed with the evolution in surfing, and TransWorld is right there to be a part of it—as we intended from the beginning. I am pleased to get this opportunity to be a part of something as forward thinking as TransWorld SURF, and it will be interesting to see where we take surfing in three, five, and twenty years. “
 
“Charlie exemplifies everything that is TransWorld SURF,” said Liam Ferguson, Group Publisher for TransWorld Media. “He is progressive in his approach to how he works with clients and brands, and he knows exactly where the future of surfing is going. I had the pleasure of hiring Charlie back two years ago, and I am amazed at what he has accomplished in that time.”
