Wisconsin-based PlayMonster just added another seasoned executive to its ranks.

Following the appointment of Tim Kilpin as its president this summer, the company appointed Jeff Freeman to serve as its new vice president global operations.

“We are so pleased to welcome Jeff Freeman to the team,” says CEO and Chief PlayMonster Bob Wann. “At this time of international expansion and global franchise building, Jeff brings yet another significant and high level of experience to our leadership team in a very exciting growth period at PlayMonster.”

In his newly created role, Freeman will lead and oversee the management of manufacturing across distribution, supply chain, QC, production, and maintenance.

“With PlayMonster’s focus on global growth, new acquisitions, and franchise development, like Snap Ships, I could not be more pleased to join the PlayMonster team,” says Freeman. “I’m excited to jump back into the toy industry, which I love, and contribute to PlayMonster’s continued success.”

Freeman previously served as senior vice president at Mattel’s American Girl and has spent the past several years running a business management consulting practice in addition to serving as an adjunct professor at the Milwaukee School of Engineering.
