WildBrain CPLG has appointed Clare Vosper Mortimer as VP of finance and operations in its London office and Angela Reuber-Gundolf as commercial director for Germany.
Vosper Mortimer joins from Entertainment One/Hasbro, where she served as senior VP of finance and operations. Reuber-Gundolf joins from IMG in Germany, where she was responsible for the global licensing strategy and business of key clients such as Haribo and Bundesliga.
In her new role in London, Vosper Mortimer will focus on enabling even stronger partner-centric financial and operational services, augmenting WildBrain CPLG’s best-in-class suite of other in-house services, including creative, legal and partnerships.
Prior to working at Entertainment One/Hasbro, Vosper Mortimer held senior positions at Quercus Books (now part of the Hachette Group), NBCUniversal and Entertainment Rights/Classic Media (now NBCUniversal DreamWorks).
In Munich, Reuber-Gundolf will focus on leveraging WildBrain CPLG’s global reach and infrastructure to drive growth and strategic alignment for existing licensors across Germany, Austria and Switzerland, including Peanuts, PLAYMOBIL, SEGA and MGM, as well as looking to strengthen WildBrain CPLG’s portfolio of entertainment, lifestyle and sports properties. She will also work on building out and expanding the presence of the Teletubbies licensing program into the adult market, targeting Gen Z and their kids.
Before her role at IMG, Reuber-Gundolf was senior franchise development manager CPGP for EMEA at The Walt Disney Company in Germany, where she was responsible for driving the franchise strategy of National Geographic Consumer Products across Europe.
“We extend a warm welcome to Clare and Angela as they join WildBrain CPLG,” said Maarten Weck, executive VP of global partnerships and licensing. “Our in-house services team is a distinctive and pivotal element in our offering to partners, and augmenting the team with Clare’s financial and operational expertise is part of our ambitious plan as we further evolve WildBrain CPLG into the licensing partner of choice for global brands. Angela, too, will play a key strategic role, leading our commercial activities in Munich to build out robust development programmes in the GSA territory both for partner and WildBrain-owned brands, applying global expertise at the local level. Both of these appointments reflect our commitment to offering our partners best-in-class services and sector-leading expertise.”
