The realignment involves the creation of four new divisions that will form two new lines of business – one focusing solely on Thomas and Friends and the other on Hit Global Brands such as Angelina Ballerina, Barney, Bob the Builder, Fireman Sam, Pingu and Rainbow Magic.

The Thomas and Friends line of business will comprise three divisions: the New York-based Thomas Americas headed by Pam Westman (which will focus on North and South America), the London-based Thomas EMEA headed by Rick Glankler (which will focus on the UK, Europe, Middle East and Africa) and the Hong Kong-based Thomas Asia headed by Antonio Huab (which will focus on Asia, including Australia and Japan).
