Meeting the CEO of LEGO

Posted by ChocolateFrogs , May 23 2017 · 210 views

LEGO BrickFair Bali Padda Minifigs
BrickFair New England (AKA Massachusetts) happened a few weeks ago, and hoo boy was there much going on! I easily doubled the amount of sets in my "to be built" pile--and didn't pay for any of them! That's the power of playing games and volunteering. I also met a few new people that will be good to see again at BFVA. Plenty of inspiring MOCs and fun ideas.

But what really stood out was meeting all the LEGO Group folks that came to visit from Enfield, CT, which is pretty close by. I met a few people from the social media team, chatted with an employee who handles LEGO Brand Retail Stores about what gets me into the store (like promotions), talked with Strategy Director Jack Clarke for about 20 minutes (and even showed him a few Space MOCs), went to panels by folks like Paul Striefler (AFOL liason) and Tim Courney (LEGO Ideas) Sara Moore (LEGO Rebrick), and attended a very special panel by LEGO CEO Bali Padda who just happened to be in the States this week and was able to spare about an hour on his way to the airport for a Q&A and meet and greet.

While Danny is still holding my photo with Bali Padda for ransom, I was lucky enough to get his minifig business card:

So I'm pretty pleased with my takeaway from BrickFair NE.

Thanks. Edited. Someday I'll learn all these names and titles. Until then, I'll just enjoy the experience of meeting LEGO people (and getting their minifigs).
