Thierry Bourret

Business Development for Toy Industry Companies, Toy Sourcing, and Product Development Specialist in Kowloon, Hong Kong

I help my toy industry clients develop international sales in territories they do not cover with internal sales staff. My goal is to help my clients be more successful and profitable. This is precisely why I founded Konomocha (HK) Ltd, which leverages my years of international sales experience. I measure my success by the number of new territories I open and/or grow for my clients. I am not in it for the quick win but am totally honed in cultivating solid, long-term relationships for my toy industry clients with the right partners, be it with distributors or direct to retail. I relish the challenge of opening new doors.

My sales territory is extensive: while Konomocha (HK) Ltd specialises in APAC, for some clients I cover parts of Europe (it helps that I am bilingual English and French), USA, and South America.

A natural connector, I build relationships within the toy industry by traveling to numerous trade fairs around the world. There I can meet and get to know new distributors and retailers. In addition, being based in Tsim Sha Tsui means that I am always available to people when they visit Hong Kong showrooms and trade fairs.

As a very active networker, I have over 5,000 toy business contacts around the world. I also started a networking group for Hong Kong toy industry people in and around Tsim Sha Tsui called Toy Thursday. The group meets once per month on the third Thursday to exchange ideas and sometimes invite specialists to give a lecture.

As someone who is not afraid to get his hands dirty in order to get the job done properly, I strive to lead my company by example. I am constantly planning how best to effectively manage and promote my client accounts. I ensure that my carefully chosen partners are working to their full capacity on the brands I represent. Konomocha (HK) Ltd has a spotless reputation in the toy industry worldwide, which helps me continue to connect people and make great things happen.
