Turner CN Enterprises has restructured its EMEA consumer products team.
Consisting primarily of internal appointments, the new consumer products team is redesigned to concentrate on retail and licensees, two key areas of partner support.
“The business is carefully designed to be a true client and retail-facing enterprise,” says Alan Fenwick, vice president, TCNE. “In addition to promoting existing members of our talented team we have also recruited some of the brightest talents from the industry–bringing a fresh perspective and a proven track record of success.”

Maria Rosaria Milone, senior commercial director, will work under Fenwick and lead a new category sales team, which will be responsible for developing licensing strategies in line with local and regional market trends. The new structure also sees Leila Loumi, formerly of The Beanstalk Group, take on the role of head of category for apparel, accessories and footwear EMEA.
Turner has also promoted several others from within the business to head various categories including: Jason Rice for toys and sports; Victoria Saint for publishing, video games and music; Annabel Rochfort for themed entertainment; and Sandra Selva-Abril for stationery and home.
Internationally on the retail front, Fenwick will manage a new team of retail managers, also promoted from within, including: Graham Saltmarsh for head of retail for the U.K., Italy, France and Nordics; Kathrin Schenk as head of retail for G/A/S, CEE, Russia and Benelux; Mar Romera for Spain and Portugal; Amir Demian as head of retail business development in the Middle East, North Africa, Greece and Cyprus; and Archana Keskar for Africa and Israel.
