Wow! Stuff has expanded its management team with the appointment of Leanne Royce as Senior National Account Manager and Matt Eckersley as Head of eCommerce.
Dawn Lavalette, Commercial Director at Wow! Stuff said, "We agreed Leanne and Matt joining us pre-pandemic and ahead of the lockdown so most of our staff won't yet have met their new colleagues in person. Video conferencing and our quiz evenings will be the first time to really test their metal!"
Leanne's history in toys started 18 years ago at Tomy, where she worked whilst completing her Law Degree in London. Contracted originally as short-term maternity cover in the holidays Leanne stayed for 10 years. This followed with a lengthy career at Flair where Leanne started as Key Account Manager and rose to Senior National Account Manager looking after premier retailers such as Smyths Toys, Tesco and The Entertainer.
Matt is new to the toy industry but well versed with online retail having worked at a varied number of big brand consumer products manufacturers growing their online business. Matt successfully championed online opportunities and strategy, significantly growing sales for premium brands including Samsung, Tech21, Pure Radio and B&O.
Dawn says, "As we've grown our categories to now include pre-school and collectables with new exciting innovation, we need to ensure channel strategies are complimentary and disciplined. Leanne and Matt bolster our team and I think their personalities and attitude will make them perfect Wow! Stuff'ers."
