New manager takes over TCU bookstore


    The university bookstore is under new management.

    Derek Holbert, who previously managed the Indiana State University Bookstore, will now take over the position for the Barnes & Noble on South University, according to a press release.

    “Derek was chosen to manage the TCU Bookstore because of his long and successful career in bookstore management,” said Mark Kerin, regional manager for Barnes & Noble College. “But what really makes him such a great choice is Derek’s deep commitment to working with students and faculty at every university campus he has been a part of.”

    Holbert, who has worked for Barnes & Noble College for 14 years, started his career as a part-time bookseller while he was a student at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana, according to the release. After graduating in 2003, he began working for the company full-time before going back to Indiana to manage the Indiana State University Bookstore.
