Rosie Marshall to head up plaY-room

Rosie will take over the role from Miles Penhallow, who is taking early retirement after 12 years at AIS.

Rosie Marshall has taken on the role as head of plaY-room, the toy and children’s gift division of AIS.

The news follows on from the announcement earlier this summer by Miles Penhallow that he will be taking early retirement after 12 years at AIS.

Rosie (pictured above with Miles) has built up 17 years of experience in the toy industry as a buyer and store manager, working for both Toys R Us and more recently Boswells Department Store in Oxford.

Boswells had been a member of AIS for many years before its store closed in the spring.

Rosie has worked closely with the plaY-room team as part of its Member Retail Strategy committee and her appointment has the full support of its current chair, Su Gill of The Morley Group.

Rosie commented: “I am looking forward to contributing to the success of plaY-room and continuing the good work that Miles has instilled into it over the last 12 years since its conception.

“With the support of both Aimee and Faz we aim to continue to give our membership the support that they need.”
