Funrise names new EMEA export director

Funrise is welcoming Annie Sullivan to the team as the firm’s new EMEA export director.

As the toy firm continues its international growth strategy, Sullivan will over see all of Funrise’s EMEA export business.

Based in the firm’s UK headquarters, Sullivan brings over 25 years’ experience managing international growth to the role.

Having previously worked at Storm Associates, where she led the expansion of sales reach in international markets, she boasts extensive knowledge of EMEA retail and distribution.

"We’re very pleased to have Annie onboard. She’s a seasoned professional who is intimate with manufacturer/supplier-regional market dynamics,” said Martin Good, SVP of international at Funrise.

“Her end game is always customer focused, which by default, will put Funrise in good stead to rapidly grow its EMEA export business.”
