Following Miles Penhallow’s announcement that he is taking early retirement after 12 years at AIS, Rosie Marshall has taken on the role as head of play-room, the company’s toy and children’s gift division.

Rosie has built up 17 years of experience in the toy Industry as a buyer and store manager, working for Toys R Us and more recently Boswells Department Store in Oxford. Boswells had been a member of AIS for many years before its store closed in the spring of 2020.

Rosie has worked closely with the play-room team as part of its Member Retail Strategy committee; her appointment has the full support of its current chair, Su Gill of The Morley Group.

Rosie commented: “I am looking forward to contributing to the success of play-room and continuing the good work that Miles has instilled into it over the last 12 years since its conception. With the support of both Aimee and Faz, we aim to continue to give our members the support that they need.”
