Rhiannon Stubbs, Lisa Shand, David Born, Ashley Holman and David Scott have each taken number one spots in the first ever Licensing.biz Power 50, available to read online now.
The five finalists have been named among the 50 most influential people in licensing over the past 12 months for efforts across five categories: Rising Star, Licensees, Licensing Agents, Licensors and Licensing Legends.
The Licensing.biz Power 50 – sponsored by Emoji and SYBO Games – was first revealed at this year’s Brand Licensing Europe, and while the show may be over for another year, there’s still time to recapture the buzz by taking another look at this year’s Power 50.
Celebrating the most influential people in licensing 2018, the Power 50 is available to read and download on your laptops, computers or smart devices now.
“It was a tough task made all the more difficult for us here at Licensing.biz and our extended committee of judges to whittle down the votes and nominations into what we present to you today and a huge thank you goes out to all of those who did,” said Robert Hutchins, editor of Licensing.biz.
“Through your votes, nominations and the kind words you had to say of those you work with we have been able to compile this, the Power 50 across the five categories: Rising Stars, Licensees, Licensors, Licensing Agents and Licensing Legends.
While this is a snapshot of the talent that spans the licensing community, it’s a massive congratulations to all of those who feature in the first ever Power 50, and a bigger congratulations to everyone who keeps it such a vibrant and innovative industry to work within.”
Licensing.biz would like to thank its extended judging committee and its sponsors Emoji and Sybo Games for helping to bring the Power 50 to the industry for the first time this year.
