Character Options bolsters sales division in preparation for continued growth

High profile changes to the company’s sales structure are afoot at Character Options, as the toy firm positions itself for further market growth with a double promotion and a new hire.

Both Richard Dinham and Anthony Thorpe have been promoted to the roles of senior national account managers in recognition of their ‘first-rate professional approach and respect’ within the business.

Character Options’ sales director, David Bramford said: “I am really pleased for both Richard and Anthony as they have both played an integral part in Character Options’ success in recent years, and from a personal perspective it’s brilliant to have the opportunity to promote internally.”

In addition to the newly promoted pair, Character Options is bolstering its sales unit, welcoming Sally Hunter as a further senior national account manager. Hunter will replace Guy Rooney who is leaving to take on a new industry role.

“Sally’s professional approach alongside her contagious enthusiasm will perfectly complement Anthony, Richard and the rest of the team,” added Bramford.

“Over the years we have always felt she would be an ideal fit for Character and whilst I would like to personally thank Guy for his excellent contribution, equally I am sure Sally will relish taking this opportunity.”
