Taffy Entertainment believes it is ideally placed to become a 'truly global' organisation in less than five years - and is aiming to be one of the largest and best in the world.

Cynthia Money, president of worldwide consumer products and marketing at Taffy, told Licensing.biz that she wanted brand managers to be empowered to make decisions anywhere in the world and be supported by colleagues in any number of territories worldwide.

"We're very well-positioned to make this happen in less than five years, for a variety of reasons," she said. "Primarily, we're a European based company with a vast knowledge of and strong presence in the US market, which still is a driving force.

"However, I believe most of the industry's growth in the next five years will be outside the US and will hinge on the ability to adapt to the multiple entertainment platforms that are now being developed."
