“I am thrilled to be joining the Mattel family,” said Dunne. “And I look forward to not only deepening moms’ and kids’ relationships with such household names as Barbie, Hot Wheels, Fisher-Price and American Girl but also cultivating and growing Mattel’s up-and-coming brands and properties. This is certainly an exciting and dynamic time to be joining Mattel.”
