Funko has announced the appointment of Jennifer Fall Jung as chief financial officer.
Fall Jung will succeed Russell Nickel when she begins her tenure next month. She will bring 20 years of experience to the role after holding leadership roles with retailer Gap. The role will see her plan for long-range finances, manage Funko’s financial portfolio and communicate with the investment community.
“On behalf of the entire company, I’m pleased to welcome Jennifer to the Funko team,” says Brian Mariotti, chief executive officer, Funko. “Funko is at the epicenter of pop culture, and we believe Jennifer’s proven track record at an iconic company with deep consumer brand loyalty will be invaluable as we introduce new product lines and engage fans with the content they love. With Jennifer’s experience in operations and growing international markets, I’m confident that Funko will be well positioned to further diversify our portfolio and extend our geographic reach as we capitalize on the 500-billion-dollar global pop culture market.”
Fall Jung’s predecessor, Nickel, has agreed to remain with Funko in an advisory capacity through the end of the year to facilitate the transition of the role.
