Toymaker Hasbro on Tuesday said longtime Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Brian Goldner died, two days after he went on medical leave.

In a statement last year, Goldner said he had been under continued medical treatment following his cancer diagnosis in 2014.

Board member and former CEO of marketing firm InnerWorkings Rich Stoddart has replaced Goldner on an interim basis.

Goldner, 58, joined Hasbro in 2000 and was appointed CEO in 2008, the company said.

“He expanded the company beyond toys and games into television, movies, digital gaming and beyond,” Hasbro said.

Goldner oversaw the company as sales recovered and surged after the COVID pandemic.

Goldner also served on the board of directors of ViacomCBS.
