Sarah Winter launches Outset Media in UK thumbnail

Sarah Winter is striking out on her own after more than a decade at Green Board Games, most recently as its Head of Sales.

The toy sales veteran will be bringing North American games and puzzle company Outset Media to the UK as its International Sales Agent.
Outset Media was originally set up in 1996 with the sole purpose of publishing and distributing a single board game called All Canadian Trivia, but is today a major wholesaler and manufacturer of board and card games, and jigsaw puzzles.
Sarah joined Green Board Games in 2008, the same year founder Gary Wyatt launched the popular BrainBox games brand. During her time at the company she saw the business through two successful company sales, including its recent acquisition by Asmodee in July this year, where she was then faced with the tough decision to stay or move on.
Speaking on her decision to partner with Ouset Media, Sarah says: “There comes a time when one has to look beyond the role you love and dig deep to look at what one wants from and for the future. This seemed to be an ideal time for me to set up my own business and have a go at playing my own game, to see where it might lead me.”
