Denmark-based licensing agency Kidz Entertainment/EEMC has announced a series of staff changes that went into effect at the beginning of the month.
Gabriel Sturm, former VP of Sales for the Nordic region, has left the company and is moving with his wife to Hong Kong to work for Top Toy Group, while senior brand manager Karina Munkholm Graversen steps up to fill the position.
Kidz also has two new additions to its team. Annalisa Woods is joining as brand manager, bringing a wealth of experience from her previous role at publisher HarperCollins. Peter Schnohr, meanwhile, has signed on as brand and retail consultant. He’ll be working with both the brand marketing and creative teams. Schnohr brings eight years of experience with Hasbro Nordic, including five years as sales director.
Kidz director Morten Geschwendtner says the company plans to further expand in its key territories, in particular, Russia, in 2010.
