London-based prodco Sutikki has tapped former NBCUniversal and Entertainment One exec Hannah Mungo as its new CEO. She replaces co-founders Andrew Kerr and Irene Weibel, who left the company in January.
In her new role, Mungo will oversee and grow content production and consumer products for existing Sutikki brands including preschool series Moon and Me, as well as new properties.
“I’m starting with the goals of producing amazing content, reaching kids across new platforms like streamers, and building a brand-focused strategy for our shows,” says Mungo.
Before joining Sutikki, Mungo was country director in NBCUniversal’s brand development division, where she built consumer product strategies in the UK and Ireland for the Minions, Trolls and Jurassic World. Prior to that, she was the head of UK licensing at Entertainment One, where she spent nearly a decade growing the Peppa Pig brand via licensing sales, retail and content creation.
She’s confident her experience building teams and working on both the licensing and content side of the industry will help her at Sutikki, she adds.
Sutikki has also tapped Simon Philips to sit on its board. Philips was previously EVP and GM of Disney EMEA, president of Marvel Entertainment International and managing director at 4Kids Entertainment International. He also joined London-based producer Moonbug as a senior in-house advisor to help connect its CP and content businesses.
Along with the new faces in its upper ranks, Sutikki has announced new investments from Trilith Studios (Avengers: Endgame) and California’s JSB Toons.
