The agency’s representation of Hasbro has extended to more regions.
August 27, 2020
WildBrain CPLG has signed on to represent Hasbro Consumer Products in Central and Eastern Europe and Turkey.
“We are very pleased to extend our geographical footprint to represent Hasbro in CEE and Turkey, where we see tremendous opportunity for their leading family brands,” says Maarten Weck, executive vice president and managing director, WildBrain CPLG. “The addition of these new markets to our remit strengthens our strategic relationship with Hasbro and gives us even more opportunity to synergize our European efforts, without losing the local touch.”
Hasbro appointed WildBrain CPLG as its new sub-representative in the Nordics and Benelux earlier this year and has now expanded WildBrain CPLG’s rights to include CEE and Turkey. Under the agreement, WildBrain CPLG will now represent Hasbro’s merchandise, publishing, promotions and short-term location-based entertainment business across Benelux, Nordic, CEE and Turkey regions.
“We are moving our direct business to an agent model in CEE and Turkey as both regions have tremendous growth potential for our consumer products business,” says Marianne James, vice president, Hasbro Consumer Products EMEA. “We believe that the strength of WildBrain CPLG to cover Benelux, Nordic, CEE and Turkey will allow us to scale our efforts in a meaningful way. WildBrain CPLG will develop our strong portfolio of brands such as Nerf, Monopoly, Play-Doh and My Little Pony.”
WildBrain CPLG will be exhibiting at this October's Festival of Licensing. Click here to register!
