The founder of 4Kids Entertainment, Al Kahn, has re-emerged in the licensing business - working with Pacific Entertainment's Baby Genius brand.
Kahn - who retired from 4Kids in January - will act as an exclusive consultant in the children’s pre-school and education markets. The announcement was made today by CEO Klaus Moeller at Licensing International Expo.
“We are proud to welcome Al to the Pacific Entertainment team and pleased that he sees the tremendous growth potential in our company and the Baby Genius brand," said Moeller. "The management team has been together developing the brand for the last decade, and we are excited about the potential to accelerate our growth. Mr. Kahn will bring great energy to our effort, as he works to develop additional children’s edu-tainment and branded educational opportunities for Pacific Entertainment."
Kahn added, “I am thrilled to join Pacific Entertainment, and to accelerate the development of the company’s flagship Baby Genius brand. Baby Genius is one of the leading children’s edu-tainment brands in the industry, with great products, expanding distribution, and wonderful licensing relationships.
"I look forward to facilitating the development of new programs, intellectual properties and products that help children get a head start in life. This new role is an exciting opportunity to combine my career expertise and personal passion to help children develop into successful adults.”
