Andrew and Irene have announced that they will be leaving the business they co-founded in 2016.
The co-founders of Sutikki, co-producer of the pre-school series Moon and Me and the Kuroba! toy-based brand, have announced that they will be parting company with the business, citing its new investors as the reason.
In a post on LinkedIn, Andrew Kerr said:
“A note to my friends and colleagues in the children’s entertainment industry…
Today Irene Weibel and I are confirming that we are no longer involved in the management and operations of Sutikki, the company we co-founded four years ago.
The arrival of new investors in Sutikki earlier this year, and the direction that the company has chosen to pursue since, has made this difficult decision a necessary one.
We thank the many partners all around the world who believed in us, and our vision for Sutikki, and for their efforts on our shared behalf.
Irene and I are excited about our future endeavors, both together and individually, and we look forward to connecting with our friends and colleagues about opportunities to work together in the days and weeks to come.
Excelsior until then!”
Sutikki was co-founded by Andrew and Irene in 2016, and opened its first European office in 2017. Stephen Gould remains head of territory, UK/EMEA, at the company’s UK office.
