Erica Haythornthwaite, National Account Manager at educational games and jigsaws brand Orchard Toys, is to leave the company after more than 25 years.
After 32 years in the toy sector, London Toy Fair will be Erica’s farewell to the amazing customers and colleagues she has had the pleasure of working with.
Over the years she has created many fond memories, and lots of personal highlights, including working with a palaeontologist at the Natural History Museum to develop the Dinosaur Discovery Puzzle, the fun fancy dress nights out at Toymaster shows, and all the people she has met in the toy trade, customers, associates and colleagues.
Simon Newbery, Managing Director at Orchard Toys, says: “Erica has been a key member of our sales team during her 25 years with us. She will be greatly missed by us all, and we wish Erica the very best in her future endeavours”.
