Melanie Teed-Murch has stepped down as president of Toys R Us Canada after nearly 25 years with the company.
The retailer says she is moving on to pursue a new opportunity – the details of which were not disclosed – though it is not known when she will leave the top post.
Toys R us Canada said it had not yet appointed a successor or an interim boss.
Melanie joined Toys R Us in 1996, working her way to the top post three years ago, where she oversaw the business as the wider TRU group collapsed around the world.
During that period, Toys R Us Canada managed to keep the doors after being snapped up by investment group Fairfax Financial Holdings ltd for CAN$300m.
Since the acquisition completed in June 2018, Melanie has been the face of Toys R Us in public-facing campaigns, including the donation of more than 700,000 toys to charity over the Christmas period, and promotional events for Mattel’s 60th anniversary activity for Barbie.
Late last year The Entertainer secured a deal to supply Toys R Us Canada with toys from its Addo Play range, launching the products in-store on 1 January.
