Mind Candy announces its appointment of Darran Garnham to head of the global licensing division. Garnham will be responsible for the offline expansion of the Moshi Monsters brand, including a new global licensing strategy, an in-house team and ground support in key markets worldwide.
With more than 14 years of licensing experience, Garnham joins Mind Candy from Kidz Entertainment where he was SVP Sales & Marketing Eastern Europe. Prior to joining Kidz, Garnham was director of international sales for 4Kids.
Garnhamʼs first hire was Dave Tovey, who came on board as Licensing Manager, and has made hiring a U.S. Licensing Director his next priority.
“We're delighted to have both Garnham and Tovey on board, both of whom bring with them extensive licensing knowledge and experience that will help to develop and shape the global growth of Mind Candy's licensing division,” says Michael Acton Smith, chief executive officer of Mind Candy.
