Jazwares is continuing to build up its UK team, hiring a new UK sales director in the form of Dan Sugrue.

Sugrue joins the firm from Flair, where he served as business manager. He brings with him a wealth of experience, having spent more than 15 years in product sales at FMCG companies such as Phillip Morris International and Henri Winterman.

"We're thrilled to welcome Dan to the team," said Jonny Taylor, UK MD at Jazwares. "Dan's experience and outlook align with our goal of building a first class sales force."

Sugrue added: "I look forward to building a dynamic sales team, fuelling growth and matching Jazwares strength in the global marketplace."

Opened in December 2012, Jazwares' UK office has been bolstered thanks to the success of brands including Minecraft, One Direction, Star Wars and Adventure Time.

This year it has added a slate of new brands in the pre-school space including Chuck & Friends, Ella the Elephant, and a growing platform in Blueprints Paper Craft sets.
