Jon Birch to move on from Wow! Stuff

Published on: 27th August 2019

The director is leaving after 11 years with the innovative toy company. 

Following significant growth and a raft of new appointments at Wow! Stuff which began in 2018, Jon Birch, director at Wow! Stuff, leaves after 11 year’s service.

Wow! Stuff’s CEO Richard North said: “It’s all about the people here, so when a hard working, trusted colleague leaves the company it’s a sad day. Jon goes with our deep, heartfelt thanks and best wishes.”

“The time feels right for a change,” said Jon. “It’s been an absolute pleasure, incredible journey and an honour to have worked with the Wow! Stuff team, but now feels the right time to move on. I leave as the business is entering unprecedented growth in 2019 with a raft of new product innovations and brands set for launch in 2020. I am very confident that my small shareholding in the business will continue to grow further in value as the business keeps ‘doing wow’ as only Wow! Stuff knows how.”

Recruitment to the Wow! Stuff business across sales and commercial activities began in November 2018 with Dawn Lavalette joining from Tesco, followed by Ian Goodall from Logitech, Kelly Fletcher from Muller and most recently Sunny Walia from Tesco.
