Joining a panel of guest speakers that also included Toys R Us President Hank Mullany and Kerry Phelan, former executive vice president of consumer products for Dreamworks, President Mills was invited by Michael Moynihan ’89, LEGO’s vice president of marketing, to inspire LEGO’s sales, marketing and operations personnel on a strategic and emotional level and to help celebrate the broader value of the toymaker’s work.
