Rainbow Designs builds on ‘record year for business’ with new appointments

Rainbow Designs is investing and strengthening its core sales team with the appointment of two new team members.

The Home of Classic Characters has welcomed Mark Standen to the new role of sales manager and Mandy McGough as northern territory manager.

Standen has joined Rainbow as the sales manager with responsibility for independent sales team, key accounts, as well as B2B Online sales. With 14 years in the industry, Standen has experience with Yankee Candle, Carte Blanche and Posh Paws.

Meanwhile, McGough’s position at Rainbow will draw upon her four years’ experience as a territory manager for DMC. Her role with the arts and crafts company saw her working with toy stockists, similar to those she will now be liaising with at Rainbow.

Zara Grindrod, sales director at Rainbow Designs has said that this is a particularly exciting time for both to be joining the firm from a team and growth perspective.

“We are delighted to welcome Mark and Mandy to Rainbow, and we know they will be a great asset to our dedicated sales team,” she said. “Their appointments represent an important investment in this area and they join us at an exciting time as we celebrate a record year for the business.”

Rainbow’s current licensed portfolio includes the likes of Peter Rabbit, Paddington Bear, Disney Classic Winnie-the-Pooh, Peppa Pig and more.
