Andrew Carley leaves eOne

Published on: 5th April 2019

The former head of global licensing is looking for a new challenge in the licensing field.

Andrew Carley parted company with eOne yesterday, after spending 12 years with the company. Speaking to Toy World, Andrew admitted that he would be sad to leave, adding: “It’s been an amazing journey, I’ve loved every minute of it. It has been a privilege to work at eOne, with the freedom to build the operation into the global powerhouse it is today. We started out with just three people in the UK and now there are six offices across the globe, employing hundreds of people. We’ve taken Peppa Pig from a brand that had around a dozen UK licensees to a truly global property with over 3000 licensees across the world.”

In the short term, Andrew is taking time to think about what the future holds, although he admits that he would love to stay within the licensing arena and utilise the extensive knowledge, experience and contacts that he has built up in the global licensing community over the past 12 years. Andrew can be contacted on 07734 066113 or at andrewandgillian@outlook.com.
