Copyright Promotions Licensing Group, a DHX Media company, has appointed Brian Mann as vice president of consumer products for the newly opened CPLG North America office.
In his new role, Mann will develop the CPLG portfolio including St Andrews Links, Michelangelo and "Space Invaders," as well as DHX Brands properties including "Teletubbies," "Yo Gabba Gabba!" and "Ella the Elephant." He will also be working closely with CPLG North America’s senior vice president and general manager Ted Larkins and CPLG’s U.K. head office to secure new representation for the North American market.
"Brian brings a wealth of knowledge in licensing having been at Paramount Pictures where he was vice president of worldwide consumer products," says Larkins, to whom Mann will report. "Before that he was the director of licensing at MGA and Global Icons respectively. He has vast experience building North American licensing programs across both sports and entertainment brands and will be an incredible asset to the rapidly expanding CPLG team.”
