New executive members are coming to Sutikki, the children’s entertainment company behind U.K. show “Moon & Me.”
November 12, 2020
Sutikki has announced the appointment of Hannah Mungo as chief executive officer and Simon Philips as its newest board member.
Mungo steps into the top executive role at Sutikki, a role previously held by Scott Greenberg, with a history of leadership experience in brand licensing and kids entertainment. As head of U.K. licensing at Entertainment One, Mungo was a key member of the team that built “Peppa Pig” into a globally recognized brand that became the key asset in Hasbro’s eventual four-billion-dollar acquisition of the company.
Most recently, Mungo served as the country director, U.K. & Ireland for NBCUniversal’s Brand Development division where she transitioned the business from agent to direct model. At NBCUniversal, Mungo built and led a team across consumer products, marketing, retail and product development that leveraged entertainment brands like “Minions,” “Trolls” and “Jurassic World” to build profitable growth.
“I'm delighted to take the lead at Sutikki and drive the company forward for what is set to be a very bright future,” says Mungo. “Our vision is to create amazing content, maximize exposure of that content across the globe, and engage consumers with a 360-approach. ‘Moon & Me’ is a great example of the quality, internationally scalable content created at Sutikki and I’m excited for the future opportunities that come with our existing and new IP.”
Philips joins Sutikki’s robust board of directors to provide guidance on the company’s vision and the execution of its global brands. He brings a wealth of experience from his history as EMEA executive vice president and general manager at Disney, president of Marvel Entertainment International and managing director at 4Kids Entertainment International. His creativity and leadership have resulted in billions of dollars in revenue and unparalleled global brand recognition.
“Building creative ideas into cultural touch points has been my lifelong passion and I see the opportunity to continue this legacy with Sutikki and its team,” says Philips. “I'm thrilled to be joining Frank Patterson, Brett Coker, Jim Garrett and Scott Greenberg on the board. Together, we couldn't think of a better qualified person to step into Scott’s shoes and lead Sutikki into the future than Hannah.”
Sutikki has found success in the entertainment and licensing space from its “Moon & Me” series. The brand announced a slate of new partners late last year.
