Bandai UK has named Nic Aldridge its new general manager.

The former Flair exec will be joining the Richmond based business on Aril 24th.

Meanwhile, Clive Smith will be stepping into the role of managing director while Tess Parsons-Broome has recently been promoted to the new position of marketing manager.

Smith said: “We are thrilled to be welcoming Nic to Bandai UK at what is a very exciting time for us.

“In addition, we have a number of very exciting new projects in place for the coming months. Nic has many years of industry experience which we are sure will help us to meet our growth plans for the future.”

Commenting on the new appointment for Tess Parsons-Broome, Smith added: “Tess’ work on Power Rangers over the past three years has been invaluable and this is a well-deserved promotion for her.”
