Graham Saltmarsh to lead Licensing International UK

Popular former licensing and retail director at Turner takes the helm of UK arm of trade association.

Licensing International has appointed Graham Saltmarsh to head up the UK division of the trade body.

In his new role, Graham (pictured) will be responsible for advancing the business of licensing across all sectors of the industry in the UK, creating programmes in support of current members and developing initiatives to meet the needs of future members.

A popular figure in the UK licensing sector, Graham was most recently director of licensing and retail for the UK & Nordics at Turner Broadcasting where he oversaw the consumer products and marketing activities for key properties including Ben 10, Powerpuff Girls and Rick & Morty.

He is also a keen supporter of industry charity The Light Fund, having raised money through a number of activities including the London Marathon and the London to Paris row.

“In these trying times it’s more important than ever to bring all the different elements of this amazing industry together to share knowledge and expertise,” commented Graham. “I am looking forward to working with Licensing International and to connecting people who are passionate about licensing and retail to drive the business forward.”

Maura Regan, president of Licensing International, added: “We are thrilled to have Graham on board, leading the charge in the UK for Licensing International. His deep understanding of the UK licensing community, combined with a fantastic ‘can do’ attitude is a wonderful addition to the Licensing International team.”
