Learning Resources has appointed Michael Radzio as head of sales. Formerly of Goliath, Clementoni and Jumbo Games, Michael brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience in the international retail toy market.

Michael’s key responsibility will be to develop and grow trade, retail and ecommerce accounts across Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India.

Michael commented: “I have been observing Learning Resources’ development for quite some time. It’s a great company with a professional team and excellent products which really deliver on its education-through-play promise. It’s a challenging role, but one which I’m excited to embrace and enhance with my knowledge and experience. I’m very much looking forward to it, and to being part of the Learning Resources team in the UK.”

Simon Tomlinson, currently head of marketing at Learning Resources, has seen his role expand to head of Amazon and marketing in recent weeks. He is now responsible for managing and developing Amazon accounts for the business across Europe and India, whilst retaining ownership of Learning Resources EMEA marketing operations.
