The senior buying manager is heading to Warner Bros.
John Hext, category manager, Toys & Nursery, commented: “While we’re sorry to be losing Garry, we are of course very pleased that he has been given this opportunity and we’re sure he’ll be a big success in his new role.”
John was also to share some changes that Garry’s departure has created within the toy buying team.
Ongoing, Claire Urquhart-Deane will be senior buying manager for outdoor toys, pre-school toys and nursery, while Ladislav Gajdos will become senior buying manager for girls, boys, construction and games.
John added: “Claire played a lead role in the relaunch of our Carousel brand which has been a huge success, and I know she will continue the great work Ladi and the team have done on outdoor toys. Ladi has a wealth of toy experience across UK and CE, which he will bring to his new role along with his usual passion and enthusiasm.”
