Corey Funkey/Manufacturer

Corey has had a very successful career as a sales executive for the past 30 years. His experience is in both large multi-national corporations and smaller entrepreneurial organizations.

Prior to joining Smart Toys and Games, Inc., he was Vice President of Sales for Fibre Craft Materials in the arts /crafts and toy categories. He led the development of a strategic planning process that allowed the business to double in size.

His experience in working with both large mass market retailers and independent specialty toy stores allows him to have a unique perspective on the retail market. He finds the most positive difference between the channels is the passion that specialty store owners bring to the business.

He has been an active member of ASTRA serving on multiple committees. Corey served as Vice Chairman of the Board of the Kids in Need Foundation; a national charity devoted to helping deliver school supplies to underprivileged children across the US.

Corey and his wife Mary Ann live in the south suburbs of Chicago. They have two grown children Amanda and Christopher. In his spare time, he enjoys cooking, reading and trying to solve SmartGames challenges.
