Toys n Playthings magazine has welcomed a new Advertising Manager in the shape of Athee Waran, a former sales executive of Time Out and Groupon.

Having previously worked for Time Out Group and Dennis Publishing in various sales and business development roles, Athee brings a wealth of experience and understanding in print publishing to the role.

“It’s great to have Athee on board,” says Mark Naish, Publishing Director at Lema Publishing. “With the support of Simon Davis, who had been working with a number of out clients this year, the team will continue to deliver the very best service to our valued clients.

“And with Athee’s strong background in magazine business development, I have no doubt that he will be able to drive the publication forward.”

An “ecstatic” Athee adds: “I look forward to running the commercial print side of Toys n Playthings and getting to meet everyone in this exciting industry.”

Athee’s appointment is effective immediately, and you can get in touch with him on 01442 289930 or email at athee[at]lemapublishing.co.uk.
