Chris Clover will handle the global rollout of the pocket money collectable Bumpeez
Glow Europe has hired Chris Clover as its new brand manager.
Clover will be based in Glow Europe’s London office and will work alongside the newly appointed UK sales director Alexis Venn.
He will oversee the launch of Bumpeez in new territories while working with retailers and distributors and managing the appointment of sales agents in international markets.
Clover’s credentials include the UK launch of GoGo’s Crazy Bones and Doctor Who Monster Invasion.
He has also worked in senior roles at trade news distributors including Seymour Distribution. While at Seymour he helped Bumpeez become the highest selling collectable within the news trade, in the £1.99 price point.
Jeroen Menting, Glow Europe MD, commented: “Following the recent appointment of our UK Sales Manager and a dedicated new office in Germany, Chris’ appointment further underpins Glow Europe’s strategy to develop our toy collectables business across Europe. His expertise adds a new dimension to the team and as a key player to the success of Bumpeez in the UK, we’re confident he will help Bumpeez to be a global success.”
