The licensor of the official Oxford University brand has bolstered its team with two key appointments.
Hannah Aspey joins the firm from Energy PR as brand and licensing manager. She will be responsible for the management of many aspects of the global licensing programme, as well as the PR and marketing of the brand and its retail channels (the OU shop in Oxford and an e-commerce site).
At Energy, Aspey worked with firms including 20th Century Fox, Copyrights Group, Wesco, Kazachok and the Toy Industry Association of North America.
Meanwhile, Emily Withers - an alumna of Wadham College at Oxford - becomes head of operations.
"These two appointments are key to the strategic development of the Oxford University brand globally," said Chris Evans, MD of Oxford Limited. "Both Hannah and Emily bring a tailor-made set of skills and experience to their new roles, which will greatly benefit the licensing programme and contribute to its expansion and future success."
