Published on: 15th November 2018

Kateryna Sharp joins as sales assistant, Rebecca Hersee as marketing assistant and Kim Garrod as national account manager.

Rebecca Hersee becomes a permanent member of the team after a successful maternity contract. During her time at Gibsons she has had many responsibilities including handling key accounts, creating email campaigns and growing Gibsons’ social media platforms.

Kim Garrod also joins the team following a maternity contract. Kim brings a huge amount of experience developing products and managing key accounts from her time at The Creative Source and Matrix.

Sales support assistant, Kateryna Sharp, will be primarily responsible for administering the Gibsons Amazon account as well as maintaining and building customer relationships with other retailers. Kateryna has gained experience on a wide variety of platforms during her employment at Google and Trip Advisor.

Emily Charles, product development manager, and Amanda Chaplin, head of business development, are being welcomed back from maternity leave in the spring.

Kate Gibson, MD at Gibsons, commented: “I am thrilled to enter our centenary year with such a strong and collaborative team. Rebecca and Kim have done a fantastic job holding the fort whilst Amanda and Emily are away, and I look forward to seeing them flourish in their new roles in 2019. It’s also been a pleasure to welcome Kateryna to our team, especially at such busy and exciting time in Gibsons development.”

Gibsons urges customers to swing by its stands at the London Toy Fair (E40) and Spring Fair (5 E30-F31) to say hello to the new team members.
