Fresh faces at new-look management team for Rubie’s UK

Rubie’s UK bolsters its management team with four new appointments.

Fresh faces make an appearance at Rubie’s UK as both old and new faces come on board to bolster the UK management team.

Following Holly Oldham’s return as managing director in 2018, a new-look UK management team is now in place as the licensed costume makers prepare for exciting times ahead.

Samantha Bourne has made her return to Rubie’s as head of brand licensing, a newly-created role that sees the brand and licensing team come under one umbrella. Meanwhile, Donna Joyce returns as business development manager, responsible for managing the national accounts team and driving the new business growth strategy.

Vicki Hamilton joins the team for the first time as UK marketing manager, bringing with her a wealth of experience in consumer insights-driven marketing and an abundance of creative flair.

Rubie’s has also welcomed Lindsay Rearden to the role of design studio manager, following a hugely successful ten years at Smiffys. Lindsay will be spearheading the UK division of the new global design and development team and will be fundamental in driving the change for the future.

‘We couldn’t be happier to have both Sam and Donna back in the team,” commented managing director Holly Oldham. ‘They are both in new pivotal roles that are critical to the success of the business going forward.

“The decision to bring in external expertise across the business with Vicki and Lindsay is deliberate. Both have significant experience both in and out of the costume category and we are looking forward to seeing how they can help take Rubie’s into the next phase of our evolution.”
