Susan Vargo has left Nickelodeon to join Moonbug Entertainment as its first head of live events. In this newly created role, she will manage and expand the live event business of Moonbug IPs including Blippi, CoComelon and Little Baby Bum.

Vargo joined the company on January 17, and will be based in its UK head office. Her remit covers live shows, character events and brand-related experiences such as theme parks and water parks.
