The LEGO Group is boosting its support of the LEGO Community by appointing
Tormod Askildsen as the new dedicated Head of LEGO Community Development. Tormod
takes over from Richard Stollery who will now focus on the LEGO Club and other
consumer loyalty programs. Richard says ”I’ve only been the Head for one year
and I hope I’ve  kept the seat warm for Tormod who is the greatest ambassador
for the Community. It’s good news that we are identifying more dedicated
resources to developing the Community. It’s been a privilege to attend, meet and
speak with members of the Community across Europe and the United States at a
variety of events in 2007 and I would like to thank organizers and attendees
alike for being so welcoming. I will continue to attend Community events and
support Tormod in developing the Community as part of the CED (Community,
Education and Direct) Division within the LEGO Group. Tormod, who has been
heading up the LEGO Factory project for the past year, has previously been
responsible for interaction with the many LEGO Community groups as well as the
LEGO Club and programs like the FIRST LEGO League. Going forward his focus will
be fully dedicated to stimulating the growth and exposure of the LEGO Community.
Tormod says: “The LEGO Community is quite unique – it consist of people of all
ages from all over the world who have one thing in common; they like LEGO for
what LEGO is”, - and continues “the community of Adult LEGO Hobbyists has a
special status with the LEGO Group as a source for creative inspiration among
LEGO employees as well as among LEGO loving kids and families who are exposed to
their events and innovative LEGO creations”. Together with Tormod, Jan Beyer and
Steve Witt makes up the LEGO Community team. Jan and Tormod are based in
Billund, Denmark and Steve is based in Enfield, CT, USA.
