“We are delighted to be starting this partnership with Animaccord,” says Alexandre Volpi, chief executive officer, Vertical Licensing. “We want to continue the excellent work that has been done with the property in recent years in Brazil and identify points for improvement or categories that have not yet been fully explored. ‘Masha and the Bears’ is a loved animation by the Brazilian audience, and we see a lot of potential to increase the success of the consumer products program even further. We will also pay special attention to the Location Based Entertainment (LBE) strategy, to make the experience with the brand even more special for Brazilian families and children.” 

Based in São Paulo, Vertical Licensing specializes in consumer products and intellectual property.  As part of the partnership, Vertical Licensing will work closely with Animaccord to refine the overall strategy for “Masha and the Bear's” consumer products and live entertainment program in Brazil. The agency will be mapping and promoting marketing opportunities in the region by maximizing relationships with existing licensees and identifying new licensing opportunities.
