Popular industry exec Angeles Blanco has joined the UK subsidiary of Outfit7 as senior licensing director.

Blanco - who joins the fast growing international entertainment network from DHX Media - will advise the management team and implement Outfit7's licensing strategy across the EMEA region. She will build on the growing roster of licensees and identify new agents to ensure Talking Tom and Talking Friends are available in all territories and in key merchandise categories.

Blanco will also oversee licensing for Latin America, giving the company international representation together with colleagues in the US and the recent appointment of Cindy Um to oversee Asia Pacific.

In addition, Randeep Sidhu takes on the newly created role of senior brand director, with the responsibility for advising on the global brand management of Outfit7's portfolio of products.

Both execs will report to Outfit7's chief operating officer, Alessandro Traverso.

Traverso commented: "We welcome the experience and ideas that both Blanco and Sidhu will bring to Outfit7 as the company takes the next step in its international expansion. It is an exciting time for Outfit7 as the Talking Tom and Talking Friends franchise continues to expand its presence in the world of licensing, content generation and TV, and as we prepare to launch new products."
