UK puzzle specialists Professor Puzzle has appointed Stephen Woodman to manage the firm’s growth in the independent retailers’ market.

Woodman has joined the firm from Coiledspring Games where he spent nearly three and a half years heading up the company’s sales department.

There he grew the existing client relationships through service experience as well as developed new client relationships, tailoring launch packages and services.

“I am very excited to have joined Professor Puzzle having been familiar with the team and their product range for a long time,” said Woodman.

“Our expanding product ranges offer many unique products at attractive prices for the independent market.”

Professor Puzzle director, Ben Meldrum, added: “Stephen has a deep understanding of the industry. We are excited to start working with someone who can bring so many ideas to the table.

“His ability to build relationships, rather than just ‘self’ to customers supports our aspirations for the UK market.”

Professor Puzzle now aims to be the number one for puzzle design and supply in the UK, with a collection of both wooden and metal puzzles from across the globe.
