Until recently, Horton was international president at Radica prior to the firm’s acquisition by Mattel. He has also held MD positions with Tonka, Fisher-Price and Mattel.

Corgi International CEO, Michael Cookson said: “Today Corgi has three high quality brands focused on a wide range of high quality licenses, a broad set of collectible categories, and supporting a renewed set of products. Now we also have a proven leader in Denis to lead our growth in Europe.”

Horton added: “Corgi holds licenses for many of the highest grossing film franchises of all time, along with licenses for Harry Potter and the up-coming Golden Compass. These assets, combined with broad distribution into collector, gift, and toy channels, make a powerful platform for growth. I am excited to lead this business as it expands in Europe.”
