After 16 years at the company, Seth Bishop has stood down from his position as sales and marketing director of Re:creation and leaves the company immediate effect.
Bishop explained: "I have enjoyed an amazing 16 rollercoaster years at Re:creation and feel it is time for me to explore new challenges. We went through a significant period of change in 2011, bringing new investment into the business at which time new majority owners and a new strategy provided solid reinforcement to our heritage of innovation in the toy market.
‘At that time, I pledged three years to the new board and fulfilled both that commitment and my own desire to see a re-focused strategy successfully implemented, I am happy to move on, remaining a shareholder in the knowledge that Re:creation has an outstanding management team to protect the future of the business.
"I am grateful to an amazing team of people, some of whom I had the pleasure of working with for many years and I am equally grateful to the board and all our investors for allowing me to express my passion for toy brands and marketing. This is a passion I will continue and I very much look forward to the next stage of my toy industry career."
Re:creation CEO, Mike Lehrter, said: "We would like to thank Seth for his exceptional contribution to the company and building a highly investable business, particularly during the last three years of exciting progress and change."
