Ravensburger bolsters sales and marketing teams with triple appointment

Ravensburger has bolstered both its sales and marketing units in the run up to the New Year with a slate of new appointments.

Anne Kidgell has joined the sales team as National Account Manager, re-joining the toy industry after an 11 year hiatus spent in the confectionery industry, which included a seven year stint at Kinnerton and a term with thee industry giant, Ferrero.

It was here that she managed a portfolio of High Street accounts.

Prior to this, Kidgell spent nine years in the sales team at Mattel.  She will now report to Ravensburger’s head of sales, Derek Scott.

“We’re delighted to have Anne on board at Ravensburger,” said Scott. “This is our ninth consecutive year of growth and Anne’s experience will be invaluable as we continue to build on that momentum through 2020.”

Reinforcing the marketing team, Hayley Holland joins Ravensburger as marketing and product development assistant, while Paula Haddy takes on the role of customer services advisor.  Both will report to head of department, Katy Fletcher.
