Rainbow builds on business growth by strengthening sales team

Published on: 19th October 2018

Rainbow Designs is investing and strengthening its core sales team with the appointment of two new team members.

The Home of Classic Characters has welcomed Mark Standen on board in the new role of sales manager and Mandy McGough as Northern territory manager.

Mark joins Rainbow as the sales manager with responsibility for the independent sales team, key accounts, as well as B2B online sales. With 14 years in the industry, Mark has experience with Yankee Candle, Carte Blanche and more latterly, Posh Paws and brings with him a wealth of toy, gift and greeting sector knowledge and experience with brands such as Disney.

Mandy’s position at Rainbow will draw upon her four years’ experience as a territory manager for DMC. Her role with the arts and crafts company saw Mandy working with toy stockists, similar to those she’ll now be liaising with at Rainbow.

Zara Grindrod, sales director at Rainbow Designs, believes that this a particularly exciting time for Mandy and Mark to join the Home of Classic Characters, from both a team growth and business success perspective.

“We’re delighted to welcome Mark and Mandy to Rainbow, and we know they will be a great asset to our dedicated sales team,” she commented. “Their appointments represent an important investment in this area and they join us at an exciting time as we celebrate a record year for the business.”
