Bandai has strengthened its sales team with a double appointment at its Southampton office.
Karl Young (top left) and Gareth Warne (top right) have joined the team to take managerial positions within the firm’s sales department.
Young has taken the position of sales manger and will be responsible for the development of all major accounts. He joins from Panasonic where he spent ten years as National Account Manager on its domestic appliances business.
Meanwhile, Warne has joined from L’Oreal in the newly created position of key account manager, and will focus on new business opportunities across Bandai’s brand portfolio.
Clive Smith, Bandai’s general manager, said: “We are delighted to welcome Karl and Gareth to Bandai. They are both new to the toy industry, but we know they will settle in quickly and become valuable additions to our sales team.”
