Robert Hutchins, Former ToyNews and Licensing.biz editor, will work alongside Products of Change founder Helena Mansell-Stopher to develop “robust, must-read content to serve POC’s growing audience and member base.”
During his time at ToyNews and Licensing.biz, Hutchins oversaw editorial development across the businesses’ monthly ToyNews magazine as well as the online ToyNews and Licensing.biz platforms, shaping content and coverage including sustainability in toys and toy manufacturing, representation and inclusivity in children’s media and entertainment.
“I’ve been smiling like an idiot since I got the call from Helena (Mansell-Stopher) that this was really happening,” says Hutchins. “Working with Helena and the Products of Change team to help take her vision for the brand and its massively important mission forward is pretty much the dream job. I’m so excited to get stuck in and chatting with all the incredible people and businesses driving the sustainability effort into the future, that I’ve lost all feeling in my cheeks.”
Products of Change now has over 250 members, including Mattel, Hasbro, LEGO, Viacom CBS, Discovery Networks, BBC Studios, Asda, Tesco’s and more.
