Your company needs to acquire talent and that isn’t what you do best. Recruiting takes you away from your core competence and that incurs lost time and opportunity costs you cannot afford. We find the leading Sales, Marketing, Product Development Executives and Brand Managers, as well as the most sought after Designers in the Toy Industry. I refuse to state we “are the leading recruiting firm in the toy industry” because that is a qualitative statement and we prefer stating the facts like I am the only Professionally Certified Recruiter in the toy industry and our process and methods are different than our competitors and better suited to your needs as a hiring company. I welcome you to learn about our methodology in the Our Process section and read and review some of our Case Studies to see how we may be of help to your company.
In addition to our expertise in finding talented Sales, Marketing, Brand Managers and Product Developers, we also have the best FREELANCE TOY DESIGNERS in the industry.

National Accounts Manager
A client of mine, outside the toy industry, has acquired a very successful European toy brand/line and has brought it to the United States. This unique product is appropriate for multiple channels of distribution as it can be placed successfully in both the specialty and the mass markets. As such the company is looking for someone to pioneer this product into the marketplace. This is a new position. You should have experience with the big boxes as well as some experience or knowledge with other channels; such as drug and grocery, etc. While this opportunity has a start-up feel and excitement to it…it has the full support and backing (read money) of the larger parent conglomerate. I guess you could say it is the best of both worlds. In this position you will be reporting directly to the President (an ex toy industry veteran and all around nice guy) and working this like it is your own business. This is a non office politics company, what you see is what you get. They are plain spoken and direct – a welcome change from the high stress, semi-abusive atmosphere many of us toil under. This is a full-time position so please do not call if you are looking for a consulting or temporary position. Also – you MUST be LOCAL to the Chicago area to be considered.
My best client (by which I mean the best company I know of) is looking for a detail person to shepherd a line of products (I mean, that is what a PM does right?). That is the boring stuff. For the good stuff (like work environment, growth opportunity, etc) call me to discuss. This is an award-winning, industry-leading juggernaut with an unimpeachable history of success. They only hire winners and it is tough to get through the hiring process but if you are the best and want to work for the best, this is the company.
