In a year that’s shaping up to be one of record growth, and with ambitious plans for the future, Schleich UK has expanded its sales team with two key additions this November.

Jen Hodges has joined as Key Account Manager, returning to the toy industry after a period following other ventures,  and having held 10 years at Lego.

Kate Watson also joins the team as a Key Account Manager and is also returning to the toy industry after time at John Mills Ltd, having previously worked at Hasbro, as well as Johnson & Johnson and Waitrose.

Thomas Randrup, Schleich UK’s country manager, commented. “We are delighted to welcome Kate and Jen to the team. They join us during a year of growth and their experience and pedigree will be great assets as we strive to realise our ambitions for the company. 

"We also welcome them back to the toy industry; their return indicates just what a great industry it is to work in.”
