Katherine commented: “I’ve enjoyed being part of the Golden Bear team, and working within the toy trade, but I’m excited to move on to a new venture.”
Barry Hughes, managing director of Golden Bear, added: “Katherine has been a great asset to the Golden Bear team. She has been instrumental in driving our licensing strategy and acquisitions as well as developing our marketing team during her time with us, and we wish her all the best for the future.”
