HTI welcomes Richard Hollis to licensing division as Michelle Dalziel leaves for pastures new

HTI has appointed Richard Hollis to the toy company’s licensing division, taking up the mantle of licensing manager on a part time basis alongside Lucy Warren, licensing and marketing executive.

The appointment has been made following news that HTI Toys’ senior licensing and marketing manager, Michelle Dalziel is stepping away from the company this spring in order to pursue a career in her family business.

A well loved member of the team, Dalziel joined HTI in 2014 and was originally with the sales team before moving to take on the licensing and marketing categories. Over her years with HTI, she has helped structure the company’s licensed portfolio, playing a key role in shaping the strength and focus of the portfolio of brands and partners it boasts today.

“The team have nothing but positive things to say about Michelle and she will certainly be missed,” read a statement form the company.

Meanwhile, HTI has welcomed Richard Hollis to the team as he takes up a part-time position as licensing manager alongside Lucy Warren, licensing and marketing executive. Hollis brings with him a wealth of experience gained from working in the licensing industry over the past 31 years.

Dalziel will be working closely with Hollis over the next few months until her departure in May.
