Cloudco Entertainment – the company behind classic brands including Care Bears and Holly Hobbie – has underlined its global licensing ambitions with two new hires, including Charlotte Payne as its new director of international licensing.
Charlotte (pictured above right) joins the company armed with over a decade of experience in international licensing, honing her skills at Warner Bros. Discovery UK/EMEA. There, she led international brand and business strategies, orchestrated marketing retail activations, and curated fresh business development initiatives across an assortment of entertainment and lifestyle brands.
Her mission at Cloudco is to redefine brand strategies and accelerate Cloudco into the global spotlight. Charlotte will be reporting to Robert Prinzo, head of global licensing.
“I am thrilled to embark on this new adventure with the exceptional team at Cloudco Entertainment,” commented Charlotte. “As we dive into this exciting journey together, I am confident that we will not only uphold the legacy of these treasured brands but also explore new horizons, creating memorable experiences for fans worldwide.”
In addition, Noelle Nuñez (pictured above left) has joined the company as manager of retail development.
Noelle’s most recent role was at Sanrio, where she served as an associate licensing manager. In her new capacity, Noelle will be leading retail for the speciality retail channel along with new business development and reporting directly to Amy Sullivan, vp of global retail development. Noelle will be based in Cloudco’s Los Angeles office.
“Cloudco’s commitment to retail development aligns perfectly with my passion for creating meaningful consumer product experiences. I’m excited to be part of a company that values innovation and creativity,” commented Noelle.
