Moose Toys appointed Glenn Abell president and general manager for Moose Toys USA. Based in Los Angeles, Abell will be a member of the Moose Toys senior leadership team and be accountable for all facets of the business in the United States. A 16-year veteran of The LEGO Group, he’s set to begin his new role this April.
“I’m very excited to be joining the team at Moose in April,” Abell says. “Over the years, Moose has proven itself as an innovative, entrepreneurial and fast moving company with expertise across several categories. Since entering the U.S. market directly, the company’s growth has been amazing. I’m looking forward to joining a very capable and talented team in Los Angeles to be a part of the company’s evolution.”
“Being a family-owned business with a tremendous culture was a major factor in my decision to join. In addition, the ability to help children in need through the Moose Foundation is something that is very close to my heart. On the commercial side, I’m looking forward to contributing to the growth agenda. All in all, a very exciting road ahead,” he adds.
“At Moose it’s all about getting the right people on our team. We always aim to employ individuals who are at the top of their professions and who can bring innovative ideas and ways of doing things to our business,” says Paul Solomon, co-owner of Moose Toys.
“We are so excited to have Glenn join our team. We know that he will bring his creative mind, market knowledge and insights from many years in the toy industry, and with this, he will be instrumental in helping us achieve our future business goals.”
