InspirationWorks appoints Technology sales manager

Published on: 9th November 2012

InspirationWorks has recruited Paul Joyner as its new Technology sales manager.

Paul joins InspirationWorks from Sanyo Electronics, where he spent over 20 years in senior sales management positions. He will oversee the Technology customer base, working closely with the national account managers and marketing team, and also work on new channel development.

Paul will report to UK director and general manager, David Martin, who said: “I’m delighted to have Paul on board. His experience of the technology market will be invaluable in developing the IW technology business of which Kurio is the start. Technology is the fastest growing product sector in the toy market and possibly destined to be the biggest, so we’re investing in infrastructure from the outset to deal with the demand of today’s growing consumer base. We are already well en route with the next generation of Kurio tablets and accessories which will launch in 2013, but there will be other new platforms too which will be showcased in Hong Kong and Olympia in January. Paul will manage the introduction of these products to UK retail.”
