The Home of Classic Characters is strengthening its sales team ahead of the London Toy Fair, with the appointment of a new National Accounts Controller as well as a successful internal promotion to Field Sales Team Leader.

Gary’s extensive experience in both the publishing and toy sectors, most recently managing the games category at Winning Moves across the high street and independents, will be a fantastic and welcomed asset to the Rainbow Sales Team.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Rainbow family and feel like I’ve found a new home here. Managing the nursery category, in addition to the toy and gift sectors, will be new for me”
