I founded Groovy in 1991 because I’ve always loved creating things in fashion and décor and it gave my imagination a way to keep itself occupied.
Studying at art college taught me how to set up processes and finish in set timelines; a great learning curve in design and manufacturing.
Groovy UK was set up to supply several Groovy shops and introduced us to the world of China manufacturing.
Groovy was ‘Different by Design’ and has a passion for constructing new products. We decided to close the retail side and concentrate on design and distribution worldwide.
Our products are unique and interesting (like us) Our design team are always developing new ideas and constantly researching to find something new.
Quality is important and it’s something Groovy has a reputation for.
My business is my passion and I can’t imagine doing anything else
My name is Lisa Hagan and I am Merchandising Manager at Groovy UK. I live on the Wirral in a little seaside town called West Kirby with my husband Richard, our 2 boys Ned, 10 and Herbie, 7 and our little black cockerpoo called Tillie who is now an old lady at 14.
I have been at Groovy since June 2008 and along the way I have experienced the highs and lows of some big licenses such as Playboy, Hello Kitty and WWE. Our current portfolio is full of mainstream, successful brands and over the next few years we will be looking to add some very exciting new licenses which we hope to bring into the fold and which we believe will reach out to a whole new customer arena.
We have recently expanded our range of Children’s items and we are now seeing this area starting to thrive, along with other relatively new product categories such as Hot Water Bottles and Kids Slippers.
It is exciting to see new products developed and doing so well. Things like this are what makes working at Groovy so special – we start with a little idea and we build on it and it is rewarding for the team to see the successes reaped from the work put in

Hey Hi..I’m the Money Man! And I joined the fabulous Groovy Team in September 2019!
Anything financial, from strategy to tax is my game!
I’m a family man with 2 children and live local
Groovy by name and Groovy by nature would sum up the company
My role is design manager and I look after 2 amazingly skilled young designers called Brooke and Leanne.
I started with Groovy in 2015 and the design team has organically evolved into a well-oiled machine. We love to research and understand the market and customers around us, to enable us to innovate and create exciting new product.
What you love about Groovy– We are small but strong and have a lot of fun, especially working with such great licenses. How could you not want to create and design with the plethora of inspiration all around us!
When I am not at Groovy I can be found in my garden with my menagerie of chickens, bees, fish and cats….or on building projects in and out of the house with my family.
What’s exciting in Groovy for you 2022- We have so many new gaming licenses including Sonic, Pac-man, Space Invaders. My favourite has to be Borderlands because the artwork we work with is super cool! We are also loving working 1:2:1 with our customers and delivering exclusive products to their market, with that extra special USP.
My name is Amanda Macpherson the mission I accepted here at Groovy is PA to MD in Feb 2017, how times flies!
Since then I have been diversifying my skills… Project Manager, Account Manager and now Sales / Office Manager!
I defy anyone to have a more varied and fun role than I have! I have the fabulous opportunity of having my cake and eating it! a great job and part time! In my other hours I am mostly looking after my two children, well my 4 legged loves in my life, horse and a dog, when I am not at home being a wife, or trying…
2023 is going to be a tough one for the high streets and all retailers and we are currently looking at which of our fabulous new products we will be getting in.
If you are not already a Groovy customer you should be!
I’m Paul and I’m a Groovy Merchandiser.
It’s my second time working for Groovy, worked initially back in 2005 for 3 years, then I moved to London and when I returned from London in 2013 I was offered my old job back at Groovy.
Wholesaling has seen its fair share of fun (or do I mean “challenging times” over the last few years!) with worldwide issues of manufacturing & supply along with a pandemic, but we have all worked exceptionally well as a team here at Groovy and we have steered our way through it with our main aim of still providing a great designed unique product and having the availability for our customers when they need it.
Groovy has always been front of the curve when it comes to Licenses and more excitingly, we have a lot of new products that are going to be featured in the range which means that we can attract new customers and interest.
Our support of our customers set us apart from the rest – it’s the same whether you are an independent or a major blue chip company.
Hi, my name is Leanne and I am the Senior Designer here at Groovy UK.
I joined the team in November 2021 and since then I have been lucky enough to work with and be a part of the most amazing Design Team that we have here at Groovy UK to create the most fantastic designs.
My design journey has taken me all over the country from studying at the University of Sunderland, moving to London after graduation to gain some much needed key experience, then on to Cambridge to enter the Licensing design game and finally settling in Nottingham where me and my partner now live and bought our very first home (whoever said buying a home was fun is fibbing! Haha to much DIY and not enough hours in the day).
I am the ultimate License Nerd both in my working life and my personal life so I am always on the lookout for the latest trends to see how we can be ahead of the game to combine these into our products and be first to market.
The thing I love about Groovy UK is that design is a priority and as a member of the design team you are allowed the time and offered the support to create the most amazing products and as a Designer you really can’t ask for more than that : )
Hello, my name’s Jim and I joined the Groovy team at the beginning of 2019. Based in Limerick,
I’ve been brought on to help grow the Groovy business in Ireland and introduce our cool product to this wonderful land. Professionally, I’ve been involved with licensed brands for the best part of 20 years from designing, merchandising, marketing and selling, and there’s nothing I’m more passionate about.
When i’m not working I can be found playing my large assortment retro consoles, obsessing about all things Tolkien and collecting ancient artefacts. I also enjoy playing rugby, indulging in the odd pint of Guinness and of course spending time with my very patient wife and my two beautiful children.

We are the boys, everyone knows we are here and if your name is not down you are not coming in and yes we have the teeth to prove it.. albeit a few less than last year! Our mission at HQ is to relax on the cushions, bark at visitors and ensure no one has anything left in their lunch box. We do tricks for treats, if we like you. Basically run the office, we do what we like, where we like, when we like! When we are note working from home that is!
