Published on: 17th September 2020

Multiple new hires have been made in various roles across Gibsons’ business following a successful retail period for games and puzzles. 

Gibsons new hires

Gibsons, the British, independent games and puzzles company, has welcomed three new members to the team. The company was already experiencing a period of steady growth, which has accelerated due to the nation turning to puzzling during lockdown. These appointments join two new employees recently appointed to cover maternity leave.

Savannah Davenport and Avina Jayram join the team in the new roles of customer services, website and social executive, and assistant accountant. Savannah’s role is primarily focused on customer service for the Gibsons’ website as well as providing social media support. Avina will assist with financial reporting commitments, as well as developing new processes and efficiencies as the business continues to expand.

Ravinder Rai has been appointed as operations manager and brings with her experience working with major retailers, including Amazon.

Zoe Walsh joins the team as junior international account manager to cover for head of international sales, Alice Tournaire, as she goes on maternity leave. Zoe brings experience from her previous role at Talking Tables, where she was account support for UK and Ireland, and will build and maintain relationships with retailers overseas.

Gibsons product development manager, Emily Charles, is also going on maternity leave, so Emma Kilby, also joining from Talking Tables, has been appointed to manage the development of new puzzles and games over the coming year.

Kate Gibson, managing director, comments: “We are delighted to welcome Ravinder, Savannah, Zoe, Emma, and Avina to the Gibsons team and are excited to see the business develop further over the coming months.”
