Steve Washbourne promoted to UK sales director.

Stewart (pictured standing on the left) is stepping down after 2.5 years to take up a new role of sales director at IMC Toys next month. After joining the company in 2015, Stewart has worked very closely with the team to focus on the company’s core strengths and instill a positive and clear strategic approach that has successfully seen the company maintain its position as the UK’s No. 1 Adult Puzzle & Accessories manufacturer, and to continue its 2016 growth in the adult puzzle market, with double-digit growth this year.

With the news of Stuart’s departure, Jumbo is delighted to announce the promotion of Steve Washbourne to UK sales director. Steve has been with the company for over 10 years, managing national accounts and working closely with the marketing and back office teams. This promotion will strengthen the UK office as the company steps up its efforts to continue its growth this year.

Jumbo would like to thank Stewart for his great work, and is looking forward to continuing the company’s growth into the Q4 period and into 2018, under the leadership of Steve Washbourne.
