‘The opportunity to rejoin Rubie’s in this new and exciting position is something I felt I couldn’t turn down, knowing the company, the people and the industry as well as I do. I hope to bring all that I have learnt and aim to drive similar success at Rubie’s over the coming years.”

Oldham will report to Chris Isitt, VP for EMEA an Australia.

Isiit, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have Holly back and taking on this key role in fashioning the future of Rubie’s in the UK. A lot has changed in the three years since she was last here, but her experience at Hasbro will be a huge asset to Rubie’s as we move forward to face new challenges.”
