Changes confirmed at Licensing International UK

Licensing International has today (21 June) confirmed that UK managing director, Graham Saltmarsh will be leaving the organisation.

The trade body’s current head of global marketing, Steve Manners (pictured) will add UK md to his remit as Licensing International intensifies its focus in the territory.

Maura Regan, president of Licensing International, commented: “We are incredibly grateful to outgoing UK md Graham Saltmarsh for bringing back LEC live and in person, launching the retail programme and for all of his hard work throughout the pandemic, righting the ship and steering our UK members through Covid.”

Based in London, Steve will be responsible for supporting Licensing International’s UK members and expanding the UK membership through educational programmes, expanded retail initiatives, and the Young Professionals Network (YPN).

He will continue to collaborate with Informa on joint initiatives including BLE and Licensing Expo, as well as overseeing Licensing International’s marketing. The role expansion will be effective on 18 July.

Steve – who joined Licensing International in January – commented: “It has been a joy working with the Licensing International team and I am thrilled to continue those efforts with a focus on strengthening our strategy in the UK, which is a key market for the global licensing community.”
