Epic Story Media Adds Two Vets to Senior Team
Epic Story Media has brought on industry veterans Jessica Labi and David Sztoser to its senior team.
Labi and Sztoser join Epic following various stops working with creator-led brands. Sztoser, who was previously vice president of toys at Nickelodeon, will now serve as Epic’s head of licensing and merchandise. Labi, who is transitioning from Entertainment One where she was vice president of acquisitions, will now serve as Epic’s head of distribution and brand strategy.
“We’ve started the year strong at Epic Story Media with two incredible new team members, Jessica and David, joining us as well as adding to a burgeoning slate of dynamic, creator-led brands for them to sink their teeth into,” says Ken Faier, president and founder, Epic Story Media. “The company is founded on the belief that creators should be in the driving seat for their IP as it’s developed and expanded–an approach which is attracting talent across the board to partner with us.”
Both new hires come on as Epic adds to its slate of properties. The company has acquired global licensing rights to “Slugterra” as well as licensing and television rights to “Chaotic” as part of its new deals.
