After two and half years at the helm of game and puzzles manufacturer Jumbo Games, Stewart Middleton (pictured left) is departing from his role as MD.

Since joining the company in 2015, Middleton has worked closely with the team, focusing on the company’s core strengths.

He has also been instrumental in delivering a strategic approach that has seen the company maintain its position as the UK’s number one adult puzzle and accessories, and to continue its 2016 growth in the adult puzzle market, with double-digit growth this year.

Following Middleton’s departure, Steve Washbourne (pictured right) has been promoted to UK sales director.

This announcement will strengthen the UK office as the firm increases its efforts to continue growth throughout 2017.

Jumbo said in a statement: “Jumbo would like to thank Stewart for his great work and are looking forward to continuing the company’s growth into the Q4 period and into 2018, under the leadership of Steve Washbourne.”
