The Super7 Leadership Team
Founder and Owner
Brian Flynn is the founder and owner of Hybrid-Design
and Super7 in our beloved and foggy San Francisco. Super7 was supposed to be Brian's pet side-project but it has become something much more than simply a hobby. Super7 began in 2001 as a magazine focused on his obsessive collecting of vintage Japanese toys. Now, all of these years later, Super7 has evolved into a thriving retail brand that is still an extension of Brian’s original passion. As the Super7 company manifesto says: “No one made what we wanted. So we made it ourselves.”
VP of Design
Josh Herbolsheimer is a wandering space cadet searching the galaxy for weird toys, old comic books, and some time to sleep under the stars. Somewhere along the way he lucked out and got to make cool stuff for a living and as VP of Design guides the creative side of Super7. Josh joined Team Super7 in 2006 and as one of the earliest crew members has helped build Super7’s unique creative perspective and our amazing team.
Hailing from the Emerald Isle of Ireland, Chloe Goodrich brings a wealth of financial experience to Super7 from her previous life as a Director of Finance, having worked in startups, ecommerce and retail. Chloe immediately jumped in to wrestle and tame the numbers all while discovering a love for Super7’s Japanese vinyl figures.
Aaron Eiland, a creative juggernaut with experience across apparel, illustration and packaging, found his home with Super7 in 2016. Alongside Josh, Aaron brings our unique creative aesthetic and vision to life in Super7’s toys and collectibles. Aaron leads Super7’s creative team as it re-imagines and relaunches unexpected licenses like the Godzilla and The Simpsons, while always staying true to Super7’s roots.
VP of Business Development & Licensing
A fan of all things pop culture, Jen Cassidy joins the Super7 team with 15 years of toy and collectible consumer products experience. Coming fresh to the company off a career defining run at McFarlane Toys, Jen is a passionate brand evangelist who prides herself on building authentic relationships, often leading to exciting, innovative opportunities. Having spent her early years at the Mouse House, Super7’s recent partnership with Disney takes her back to where it all began. She’s excited to help expand the company’s ever-growing business, while also keeping brand integrity at the forefront.
VP of Sales
Having already established himself as a prominent figure within the local art and collector community, Luke Martinez began his Super7 journey as the manager of the Super7 San Francisco retail store located on historic Haight Street from 2010 to 2016. Drawing upon his extensive sales experience and in-depth knowledge of the collector toy world, it was a natural progression for him to expand Super7's reach to a wider audience. He's forged partnerships not only with major retail players but also with the crucial mom & pop shops that remain deeply rooted in Super7's values, elevating the brand's presence on a global scale.
