Discovery Consumer Products, the licensing arm of Discovery Communications, has expanded the role of Doris Miller to run retail sales and business development worldwide.
In her new role as vice president of global retail sales and business development, Miller will work with the global licensing division to expand, grow and develop retail strategies while seamlessly extending key North American accounts on a global scale.
Miller will continue to play an important role in overall strategic planning for the business across North America, Asia, Europe and Latin America, and is tasked with increasing the company’s retail presence around the world.
Previously the vice president of retail sales and business development for North America, Miller is actively extending the reach of the company’s brands at retail including Discovery Channel, Animal Planet, TLC and Discovery Kids. In addition to these already global brands, Miller will now focus on retail strategies for additional priorities including Discovery Expedition, Discovery Adventures, Doki, a character brand on-air in Latin America, and more.
“The expansion of Doris’ role is a true reflection of our core licensing team and efforts to create cohesive and recognizable brands around the world,” says Nicolas Bonard, senior vice president, Discovery Consumer Products. “Over the past year Doris has been instrumental in the growth of our North American licensing business and we believe her expertise and consistency across the global organization is a key component to our continued success.”
