Holly Oldham rejoins Rubie’s as UK managing director

Former Hasbro executive Holly Oldham is rejoining Rubie’s, taking on the role of UK managing director.

Oldham will begin her new role on September 24th in a move that follows a three year stint at Hasbro, where she held the position of UK and regional toy and game director.

Prior to the Hasbro move, she had spent nine years with Rubie’s.

“These three years at Hasbro have been a fantastic experience, working with great brands and a great team. I have learnt so much and hope that I have been able to contribute to our success over that time.

‘The opportunity to rejoin Rubie’s in this new and exciting position is something I felt I couldn’t turn down, knowing the company, the people and the industry as well as I do. I hope to bring all that I have learnt and aim to drive similar success at Rubie’s over the coming years.”

Oldham will report to Chris Isitt, VP for EMEA an Australia.

Isiit, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Holly back and taking on this key role in fashioning the future of Rubie’s in the UK. A lot has changed in the three years since she was last here, but her experience at Hasbro will be a huge asset to Rubie’s as we move forward to face new challenges.”
