MGA Entertainment UK and Ireland has appointed Julie Taylor as its new sales director, a role she will take up this autumn as she leaves her post of 15 years with Golden Bear.
Based in the UK head office in Milton Keynes, Taylor will oversee the sales portfolio of all of MGA’s leading brands and manage a team of ten, bringing her wealth of industry experience to the position as she heads up sales of some of the firm’s biggest brands, including LOL Surprise, Little Tikes, and Rainbow High.
Neil Bandtock, MD of MGA UK and Ireland, said: “I’m very pleased Julie is joining the team at MGA. Her excellent sales management background and extensive toy industry experience, will help to propel MGA and our customers on to the next stage of our growth and development.
“We’ve got many exciting and innovative launches – both within our current brands and new ones – planned for this season and into 2022 and I know that having Julie as our sales director will ensure we can maximise all these opportunities.”
Taylor added: “I’m delighted with the opportunity to join such a fast moving, innovative toy company. I am really looking forward to working with MGA’s UK and Irish customers and to bringing my wealth of experience to the role to help take the business to the next level.”
