Kathleen2012wwJoin us as we celebrate Kathleen McHugh, President of ASTRA, as the Global Toy News Person of the Year
.  We will present her with the award on Tuesday, February 12th at 8:30am in the ASTRA member lounge 1C03.  

Joining me will be last year’s winner, Mary Couzin, President of Discover Games and a powerful proponent of the toy industry and toy and game inventors.  The Global Toy News Person of the Year award is given each year to an individual who has helped make the greater toy industry a stronger, more enjoyable and far more prosperous place to work.   As I stated in the announcement in December (“Kathleen McHugh, 2012 Global Toy News Person of the Year”): “Characterized by her intense focus and warmth, she has helped create an environment in which toy retailers and those who serve them grow and prosper; workers find jobs and consumers have access to innovative toys that surprise and excite.”

See you there.
