The Lego Group has announced that Isabel Graham will be joining the UK & Ireland division as head of marketing.

Isabel has shown exceptional marketing and leadership capabilities during her previous roles and I’m excited to have her join our team. We are of course sad to say goodbye to Marius, who has been an incredibly valued member of our team over the past four years. I thank him for the fantastic contribution he has made to the UK & Ireland business, not only delivering strong results but also encouraging a culture of innovation and high performance. I wish them both the best of luck as they take up their new roles.”

A big thank you to our customers and many other partners for their trust & collaboration. It’s been a fun ride and I am proud of what we have achieved. I will certainly miss the many fantastic people I have worked with during this time as well as being part of the wider UK & Ireland toy industry but I’m also very much looking forward to starting my next chapter at The Lego Group.”
