Vice President, Brand Management, Beanstalk
From representing the estates of Mahatma Gandhi, Albert Einstein, and Andy Warhol, to leading global business development for a company privately owned by Bill Gates, I’ve had a fascinating and rewarding career in brand licensing. For more than twenty years, I’ve worked with corporations, celebrities, artists, and estates to develop, monetize, and manage brand extension programs both domestically and internationally. I bring expansive, creative thinking to my work and enjoy the camaraderie of strong teamwork; I’m truly a ‘people person’. I’ve also enjoyed the intellectual challenge of expert witness work on cases involving licensing, copyright infringement, agency disputes, and other matters. Additionally, it’s been an honor to be featured as a thought-leader and expert by 60 Minutes, The New York Times, Forbes, The Guardian, The Independent, the Associated Press, The Los Angeles Times, and others.
Talent and estates I’ve represented for licensing include Albert Einstein, Sigmund Freud, Richard Avedon, Mahatma Gandhi, the Wright Brothers, Michael Jackson, Justin Bieber, the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, Steve McQueen, Lady Gaga, Maria Callas, Andy Warhol, Katy Perry, Harvey Milk, Nicki Minaj, and others.
Major corporations I’ve worked with include Apple, Accenture, AT&T, Ballantine’s, British Airways, Campbell Soup Company, Chrysler, Disney, Ford, Mercedes, Minolta, Nestle, Rolex, UBS, Tag Heuer, and many others.
