Click Distribution will welcome former TRU merchandise manager, Paul Mitchell, to its team from June 1st.
Mitchell will be responsible for sourcing new product for the business. He will join as a consultant and will work closely with the senior management to source new lines and maintain positive and close relationships with new suppliers.
"I am absolutely delighted that we have a person of Paul’s stature and ability on our team," said Mark Hillier, MD and CEO of Click Distribution. "I have personally known Paul for 28 years and have always had a great working relationship with him during his time at Toys R Us, and admired his work ethic and integrity.
"When I heard that Toys R Us had let him go, I immediately wanted him to be involved in our business and fortunately we were able to do this. His relationship with suppliers is superb and I’m positive he will be able to bring some great new product ranges to our business in the coming weeks and months."
Mitchell added: "I am really thrilled to be working with Mark, Luke and the team at Click in what will hopefully be a long partnership. They have a very exciting business that is growing due to their in-depth knowledge, professionalism and great passion for the industry.
"By helping them expand their supplier base and product portfolio, I am confident that it will take their business to new levels."
