Brotherton has worked for H Grossman for around 18 years and, according to the person who nominated her, deserves to be made a Dame.
She has been instrumental in turning a toy company that dealt with wholesale only into a leading brand which attracts great licences and has become Scotland's biggest toy firm.
She has formidable skills in marketing and admin, and is very much the anchor to managing director and owner, Martin Grossman.
The ToyNews Women of the Year 2015 networking and awards event will take place on Thursday, July 16th at Home House, London. Winners for Rising Star, Innovator, Markeeter and Woman of the Year will be chosen from the top 100. Simply email firstname.lastname@example.org to vote.
