ToyNews: Firstly, would you mind giving me a bit of background to your career history in the toy business? How long have you been with Bandai?
Moromugi: I joined Bandai Japan after graduating from university in 1996 and for six years I worked in the sales team of the vending machine department where we launched capsule toy vending machines in the Japanese market.
In 2002, I moved to Bandai in France to establish the vending machine business in Europe. After four years I became European corporate planning director and worked closely with the Bandai European management team before becoming manager of Bandai European operation department in 2008, dealing with toy R&D, purchase, and QA/QC.
I am now delighted to be working with the Bandai UK team as their new president.
