Copyright Licensing Agency, based in Dubai, has also been contracted and will be led by Hussein Ftouni. Agents for Spain, Portugal and Mexico have recently been confirmed.
The initial focus will be to secure licensees across stationery and apparel.
“We’ve had a particularly strong first quarter in 2012 and I’m delighted that we now have four great agents on board to help us expand the international breadth of the Withit,” says Richard Woolf, Withit. “Their regional expertise will greatly enhance our opportunities to attract new licensees in all these key markets.”
