Toynamics UK & Ireland has announced further expansion to the team with the appointment of a new operations manager and business development manager.

Alison Whitfield

The company is continuing its growth plans for 2021 with two new additions to the team. Alison Whitfield has joined the team as operations manager, while Kate Mulliner has been promoted to the role of business development manager. Toynamics says the new appointments are a reflection of the positive growth the company has achieved, and in alignment with ongoing development plans for the business.

Alison Whitfield joins the company with a wealth of experience, having previously worked for Geodis Distribution on the Mattel account. She said she is excited to apply her expertise in inventory and stock management, process mapping and quality control to her new role, to support the expansion of the business.

Kate Mulliner was previously a sales area manager for Toynamics, and her experience is sure to be a great asset to the business development team. Commenting on her new role, Kate said: “I am excited about developing new business, especially eCommerce, as this is proving a big growth driver for us in 2021.”
