Popular former GB eye executive, Emily Aldridge has taken on a new role as head of global licensing at Abysse.
Emily – who was at GB eye for 13 years, most recently holding the position of head of licensing – will be working closely with the product and sales teams at Abysse to manage the licensing portfolio. She will also be ensuring the company is “front and foremost” for licensors looking for a pan European or global partner within the fast growing ‘geek culture’ sector.
Abysse – which has its head office in Rouen, Normandy and ten offices around the globe – specialises in pop culture and fan-focused products including apparel, key rings, drinkware, figurines and in-world replicas to name a few.
“I’m so excited to join the Abysse team,” commented Emily. “The growth of the company over the past few years is incredible and the atmosphere internally reflects this, so I really can’t wait to get started.
“Abysse focuses on making sure their products are available to all via their specialist on-the-ground sales teams in each key territory. This also means that partnering with Abysse is a great option for licensors wanting to make sure that Brexit won’t interrupt their trading opportunities.”
