Female-centric media company GolideBlox has appointed Shawn Dennis to the role of president.
In her new role, Dennis will work to scale the company beyond toys into a global business with interests across entertainment, digital media and consumer products. She will also spearhead expanded revenue, product entertainment, licensing and starting partnerships for the brand.
Most recently, Dennis served as the chief marketing officer of American Girl. Other roles include head of branding and franchise development at DreamWorks Animation.
In addition to her new role, Dennis will continue to serve on the GoldieBlox board of directors.
"When I first met Shawn four years ago, I was in awe of her deep understanding of how to inspire and engage young girls and parents. I instantly knew I had found my ideal mentor and I (not so secretly) hoped she might one day join our team full time. Welcoming Shawn as GoldieBlox's President is truly a dream come true," says Debbie Sterling, founder and chief executive officer, GoldieBlox.
