Former co managing director at 4Kids Entertainment, Stephen Gould has joined RDF Kids & Family in a consultancy role as director of consumer products.

Gould starts at RDF with immediate effect and he will be working as a consultant on all aspects of global licensing, retail, promotions, events and home entertainment for the firm's expanding portfolio of properties including upcoming pre-school Cbeebies series Waybuloo, plus US hit Yo Gabba Gabba, Mister Maker, Big Barn Farm and Escape from Scorpion Island.

Matthew Frank added: "Stephen brings a varied and extensive knowledge of the licensing, retail and consumer markets and will make a valuable contribution to the business during this key period of growth for RDF's Kids brands, as well as expansion and diversification for the core IP business in general."
