Looking to expand Marvel Entertainment’s global business opps, the superhero company has added Brit entrepreneur Theo Paphitis on board its International Advisory Board.

The Board works with Marvel execs to seek out brand expansion opps in international markets and will be in good hands with the high-profile Paphitis – he’s one of the investors on BBC Two series Dragon’s Den. Paphitis is a seasoned entrepreneur, having acquired retail brands such as Ryman the Stationer, Contessa and La Senza lingerie chains in the UK. He also acquired UK gift company Red Letter Days and was appointed patron for Skillsmart Retail, the Sector Skills Council for Retail, earlier this year, which is committed to driving up skills levels in the industry.
