Meet the team
Founder & CEO
Drew founded On Air Direct in 2004 in an effort to warehouse, process and ship items for TV shopping giant QVC. This was a natural growth opportunity for Drew who has been representing successful brands on QVC’s multiple platforms since the early 90s. With On Air Direct, Drew has overseen the company’s growth from a small facility in Chester County to their new home in Pottstown, PA and a third location in Reno, NV which gives On Air Direct the ability to deliver to the entire country in a flash.
In his spare time, Drew loves cheering on his Villanova Wildcats’ basketball team and spending quality time with his wife and 3 kids. On warm, sunny days, there’s a good chance you’ll see him zipping through the rolling hills of Chester County in his classic 1979 MGB.

She credits the exposure to so many different cultures and locations with her ability to connect with people today.

Bookended by OAD’s vendors and QVC merchants is where you will find Andrew Sweeney, E-Commerce Account Manager. Andrew is the guy who handles the QVC Extended Assortment Drop-Ship Program. He keeps a keen eye on the latest new product shipments, and looks for ways that countless product lines can grow their business on qvc.com

Director of Finance
The idea that you are reading Amy’s bios is more than enough for OAD’s Director of Finance. Amy prefers to stay in the background and let others take the spotlight. She may not want to be recognized, but OAD’s team would not be where they are today without Amy’s expertise in finance.
Alex has been keeping a keen eye on the flow of finances in and out of On Air Direct since 2015. She describes OAD’s culture as a family and that family expands past OAD’s doors and into the strong relationships she has built with outside vendors and customers. The fast pace of the 3PL world is ideal for a woman who is always on the go.
Alex keeps a strong connection to her roots while coaching field hockey at Unionville High School, the school where she once played. She also enjoys traveling the world and recently checked Spain, Costa Rica, and Africa off her bucket list.
