Cyber Group Studios Unveils New Divisions, Execs
In an effort to expand, animation entertainment company Cyber Group Studios has launched direct-to-consumer operations and content development division within its Los Angeles office. The company has also named new leadership within those divisions.

Ira Singerman will join the company as vice president of development, and Jessica Hogan will assume the role of manager of director to consumer operations.

In his new role, Singerman will oversee a slate of new television projects as well as other animated content that is set to be developed in North America. Most recently, Singerman served in similar roles at Spin Master Entertainment, Universal Kids & Family and Mattel. 

“We are always looking for the next great series for kids, but a major focus of our new development pipeline will be well-known intellectual properties and strategic partnerships with toy companies,” says Richard Goldsmith, president and chief executive officer, Cyber Group Studios USA. “Ira has the perfect background to achieve our goals.”   

Meanwhile, in her new role, Hogan will oversee the company’s business platforms and will work to engage customers directly through video-on-demand content, print-on-demand consumer products and a branded operational technology platform for children.

“We established the office in Los Angeles to continue the organic growth of our businesses and to meet our objective of being a truly global company,” says Pierre Sissmann, chairman and chief executive officer, Cyber Group Studios. “The new development pipeline was started out of demand for our productions in the region and the direct-to-consumer group to take advantage of new technologies, platforms and consumer preferences.”
