Southwood, who joined the company in 2016 as licensing manager, has worked with 9 Story Brands to manage the consumer products program for “Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood” across multiple categories, while also working with licensing agency Brand Central to reinvigorate the “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” licensing and merchandising portfolio, including publishing, toys, games and apparel.
