Vivid has appointed a new international sales director in the form of Carl Raven who moves in to replace the former exec, Jonathan Busher.

Busher has stepped down from his position with Vivid to launch his own consulting business within the trade, handing the reigns over to Raven.

Arriving with a wealth of international toy industry experience from Hasbro, TOMY, and as sales director EMEA for Summer Infant, Raven served most recently as head of international sales at K’Nex.

Tony Hicks, CEO of Vivid Toy Group is delighted to welcome Raven to the Vivid leadership team.

“Carl brings experience and passion into our expanding Vivid team and we very much look forward to welcoming him to the company,” said Hicks.

“At the same time I want to thank Jonathan Busher for his unrelenting passion for the Vivid business and his incredible commitment to the company. He has been a fantastic ambassador for Vivid across the world for these many years and we wish him all the best going forward.”

Raven can be contacted via the main Vivid number on 01483 449 944
