Playforce appoints Groupon’s Tim Lacey as Commercial Director

Playforce, the UK’s leader in the design and creation of innovative, curriculum-linked play environments for children, has appointed ex Groupon Commercial Director Tim Lacey as its new Commercial Director.

Managing Director of Playforce, Dr. Colin MacAdam says: “Tim brings with him extensive sales and marketing experience and will play a significant part in supporting our ambitious growth plans in coming years.  We’re excited to have him on board.”
