Halilit is kicking off 2022 with the addition of two new members of staff to its rapidly growing team. Following the recruitment of Adam Wale as eCommerce manager a few months ago, Marjo Cako now joins the company as logistics and demand planner, whilst Damien Leahy bolsters the sales team as key account manager.

Halilit says the new roles have been created at a time of growth for the pre-school specialist. Amy Wildman, Halilit sales manager, commented: “Despite the challenges of the past

couple of years Halilit has experienced a fantastic trading period, in part due to the variety of our customers, the acquisition of Dodo puzzles, and also the excellent reputation our brands have among consumers. We’re thrilled to have such talent joining us, to help with our ambitious growth plans over the next few years.”

The new starters join Halilit at an exciting time for the company. Halilit unveils its refreshed branding this month, whilst development of a new trade ordering platform, which will allow retailers to log in, see what’s new and hot and to place reorders, is also underway.

Amy added: “Alongside revitalising our online access for trade customers, Adam will be ensuring that our customers with their own web presence have access to the very best optimised content, whilst Marjo brings a wealth of experience in planning and analysis, skills that have become all the more critical amidst longer shipping and lead times. Damien joins us with a fantastic reputation within the industry and is looking forward to getting in touch with his customers to see how he can help grow brands such as Halilit music and Taf Toys, and hopefully meeting old and new acquaintances at London Toy Fair.”
