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.
