Published on: 25th October 2019

Redlands Distribution has appointed Jeremy Robinson as new sales and business development manager in UK and Ireland. 

Jeremy Robinson joins Redlands Distribution at an exciting time for the company, and brings a wealth of toy Industry experience, with previous roles including UK sales manager for Tomy and UK country manager for Schleich. Jeremy will focus on developing the UK and Ireland markets across all sales channels for the entire Redlands Distribution product portfolio.

Redlands Distribution has worked in partnership with the ThreeSixty Group in bringing the FAO Schwarz brand to the UK, with launches of the flagship FAO Schwarz concept in “shop in shop” agreements with Selfridges and Arnotts. It has also launched the Discovery/Discovery #Mindblown STEM ranges with a number of high profile retailers.

Jeremy commented: “FAO Schwarz is an iconic brand within the industry, and also has a huge amount of awareness with consumers in many markets. I am delighted to be part of the team bringing this offer to the UK and am also tremendously excited to see the support and interest we are experiencing for the Discovery/Discovery #Mindblown Science and STEM ranges. We are also pleased to announce that our offer has also been expanded to include the Sharper Image R/C, Robotic and Drone range, which is also seeing high levels of interest within the market in a short space of time. I am looking forward to working within this fast-moving industry in the crucial Q4 trading period and welcoming customers to the World-Class ThreeSixty Brands HK showroom in January.” 

Mark Handley of Redlands Distribution added: “We are very excited with Jeremy joining the team at Redlands Distribution. We have now established the business in the UK and Ireland markets with the launches of the FAO Flagship stores, and are now in a position for Jeremy to come in and move the business forward.”

Redlands Distribution is also exhibiting for the second year at the London Toy Fair on stand GH01.
