Hasbro has installed Jamie Gutfreund as Chief Consumer Experience Officer, a newly created role to further the toy firm’s consumer-facing projects.

The C-suite position will give Jamie oversight on Hasbro’s global marketing functions, including the internal creative agency, insights team and global media management team.
