FremantleMedia Kids & Family Entertainment executive vice president and general manager Rick Glankler has unveiled a new structure for KFE’s Consumer Products division as it continues to grow its global presence.
The new structure creates four key regions–U.K., EMEA & Australia, the Americas and Asia.
Reporting directly to Glankler, each territory head will have responsibility for managing local agents and licensees in their markets, allowing them to have a closer focus and to create territory-specific strategies to grow FremantleMedia’s global footprint.
As a result of the restructure, the central post of global head of licensing has been closed and Carl Lumbard will leave the business.
Additionally, as part of the new structure, Tessa Moore becomes senior vice president of global brand management, while Caroline High has been promoted to senior licensing manager, U.K. Additional appointments will be announced in due course.
“Since joining FremantleMedia my goal has been to build our business further by taking our key brands such as Tree Fu Tom and Strange Hill High and turning them into successful global franchises,” says Glankler. “This new structure allows us to be closer to the ground and enables us to better understand local needs as we seek to further grow our international business.”
