Wilton Bradley welcomes Hannah Pickersgill as international sales manager

Published on: 8th January 2021

Hannah bolsters the International Sales team headed by Laetitia Westerman, with whom she has previously worked in the toy industry.

Delighted to be ‘back in the game’, Hannah brings with her a range of international sales experience in the toy trade, with experience that has been consolidated over the last 11 years with roles in various UK toy businesses, as well as time spent in hospital management and luxury food & drink business development.

Hannah started her career in the toy industry in 2010, when she joined Worlds Apart (now Moose Toys) in a sales support role, gaining experience in international business and sales, and developing valued relationships with both colleagues and customers alike. Moving into the international sales manager role at Worlds Apart saw Hannah develop sales globally – across Europe, as well as Australia, Asia and Canada, working with distributors, agents and direct to retail; both bricks and mortar and major online retailers.

Following time spent at West Design, Hannah re-joined Laetitia at Addo Play before leaving for ventures closer to home.

Hannah commented: “I am delighted to have joined Wilton Bradley and find myself back in the toy industry – literally ‘back in the game’. Wilton Bradley is made up of a welcoming, knowledgeable and flexible team both in the UK and Hong Kong, and has an impressive range offering as well as excellent capacity for developing own-brand ranges with our sourcing and manufacturing resources. I have joined Wilton Bradley at a really exciting time, and I look forward to working with the team to develop and support our international customer base during the current ever-changing climate and well into the future.”
