Breaking News: Tim Hall to step down as Ravensburger MD

Published on: 18th January 2022

Ravensburger will not be losing Tim’s knowledge or experience, as he’s moving to the team handling international licensing after more than 20 years as MD. 

Tim Hall, managing director of Ravensburger for over two decades, has announced that he is to step down from the role.

Speaking to Toy World, Tim explained that the decision has been made for personal reasons and that the company is in ‘excellent health’. He said: “I would like to announce that I have decided to step down from my role as managing director of Ravensburger during the second quarter of 2022 after more than 20 years in the role. The decision is a purely personal one, but I have been fully supported by the super management team of the parent company. I have been very fortunate to have worked alongside such a talented and hard-working team in Bicester. In particular over the last two years they have worked tirelessly across all areas of the business to meet the sustained increase in demand for our products and I am extremely grateful for all their efforts and support. I am also grateful for all the support I have received from our customers, licensors, international colleagues and other partners. We have very ambitious plans for the next three years and I look forward to seeing the company go from strength to strength.

We are currently recruiting for my successor and then there will be a suitable handover period. I am delighted to say that I will not be leaving Ravensburger, but will become part of the team looking after international licensing. I will therefore be able to keep in touch with all my Ravensburger colleagues and all our partners at retail and in the licensing community.”
