This thursday, HASBRO will have it's first out of state Chief Executive Officer take over the company reigns in its 85 year existance. Brian Goldner will be set to lead the nation's second largest toy company and creators of the TRANSFORMERS.



Mr. Goldner will be succeeding Al Verrecchia, who has served at the position since 2000. Mr. Verrecchia had this to say about Mr. Goldner:

"[Goldner] has been at the forefront of Hasbro’s drive to bring innovation and growth to the toy industry and his tremendous experience and entrepreneurial spirit will serve him well in his new role.”

Mr. Goldner is definately not a stranger to the Transformers franchise either, as he served as Co-Producer opposite Steven Speilberg in the production of the 2007 live action movie.

Seibertron.com would like to congratulate Mr. Goldner on his new promotion at HASBRO, and offer our well wishes to you and HASBRO for the coming years.
