The Baby Products Association welcomes a new chair to take the helm until 2025 steering the direction of the industry’s trade body, as Andy Crane of BabyStyle finishes his three-year term. Marc Hardenberg of Majuma Ltd, previously vice-chair steps into Andy’s shoes, whilst Phil Howe of Peg Perego takes the role of vice-chair.

Robert Anslow, Managing Director of the Association, comments: “We extend our sincere thanks to Andy who had the unprecedented role of guiding the Association through very troubled waters during the pandemic with patience and confidence. We welcome Marc and Phil to their new roles and look forward to working with them to help guide the future of the Association.”


Rachelle Harel of RHSM Sales & Marketing remains treasurer for the Association, which is grateful for her continued support.


All members of the Association’s technical committee committed to serve for a further year, except for Suzie Radcliffe-Hart of the Green Sheep Group who has left the company to take a role with BSI, and Mark Buckle of Hardenberg/ Angelcare. There is a huge collective plethora of knowledge and experience on the Committee and members continue to represent the best interests of the Association on all childcare article committees in BSI, CEN and ISO.
