Clive will be heading the UK/Eire division of Famosa and will be joining the already established team that currently runs the company’s business in the region.

Clive spent the last two years at Tomy as head of european sales and, before that, seven years as joint managing director of RC2. His experience at starting up and building The First Years into one of the leading UK brands will be particularly relevant.

Famosa is aiming to build on the success they are experiencing in mainland Europe, primarily with Nenuco Dolls, the Feber range, I Love Minnie and Pinypon. The company is experiencing strong growth in Spain, France, Italy, and other regions, and has ensured the investment needed to build the UK market is in place to replicate that success.
