Former retail director Tom Hudson will be returning to the business as commercial director this month.
Tom commented: “I am incredibly excited to be working with Marvin and his talented team again. Marvin’s Magic is an iconic global brand with over 30 years of promoting innovation within the toy industry. We are working on some incredible new projects which will further confirm our position as number one for magic worldwide.”
Prior to his time with Marvin’s Magic, Tom worked as an actor appearing in television programmes. He is best known for his role as Paul Clayton, the grandson of Coronation Street’s Jack and Vera Duckworth, who’s on-screen grandmother, played by the actress Liz Dawn, passed away this week (pictured).
Following on from this he began his career with Marvin’s Magic demonstrating in Hamleys, Regent Street. Ascending through the ranks, he ran global in-stores sales teams in Harrods, Selfridges as well as FAO Schwarz and Toys R US Times Square.
Working closely with Marvin Berglas, he assisted in the development of the award winning Marvin’s iMagic, a collection of magic tricks that combine traditional magic with smart devices.
Founder and managing director Marvin Berglas added: “Tom will be a great addition to our dynamic team and shares our passion and vision to further develop and drive the business. Tom will be teaming up with myself, our sales director Rakesh and the rest of our team, so look out for more innovative Marvin’s products with a touch of magic.”
