IMC Toys is looking to strengthen its presence in the UK toy market with two new appointments to its team, as well as a move of office to a more centrally-located site in Oxfordshire.
John Gray joins IMC Toys as operations and logistics manager, bringing with him a wealth of toy sector experience to the role, having previously held positions with Mattel, Mega Brands, Spin Master and MGA. Meanwhile, Katie Petitt joins the team as account manager, after previously working in buying roles for both Debenhams and Toys R Us.
IMC Toys’ new UK office is based near Banbury in Oxfordshire, a location that offers greater accessibility to both visitors and the growing team.
Sue Barratt, IMC UK country manager, said: “I’m delighted to formally welcome both John and Katie to the IMC UK team – they both joined at the start of lockdown so it’s been an interesting beginning for them both as we navigate the challenges of the new post-Covid world together.
“The company’s investment in both people and infrastructure in the UK further signals our commitment to this market. As well as continuing to grow our Cry Babies brand, we’re growing our portfolio even further this year with the exciting new collectable pet-doll range, VIP Pets.”
