A familiar face in the toy industry, Kate has previously held positions with Schleich UK and Hasbro, and brings a wealth of experience to the role at Casdon, where she will have responsibility for managing all national accounts for the brand.

Phil Cassidy, managing director at Casdon Toys, commented: “Kate is a fantastic new addition to the Casdon family. Her stellar toy industry experience and strength in building meaningful relationships with key partners will be invaluable to the business as we continue to move forward with our next phase of growth.”

Commenting on her new role, Kate said: “I am so delighted to be joining Casdon, especially at such an exciting time for the company. I’m looking forward to being part of such a fantastic team and helping grow the UK business.”

Having just celebrated its 75th anniversary, Casdon Toys continues to look to the future with an ongoing expansion strategy for its team. Simone Inskip, formerly of MGA Entertainment, joined the team in July as marketing manager, and Laura Bull recently also joined in the newly created role of Americas territory manager.
