Rob Hughes has been with the company for five years following Zeon’s acquisition of his company Wesco in 2010. He managed the integration seamlessly and has been an important and valuable member of the Zeon team.
After 28 years in the industry he has decided retire. Esther Jolley, general manager, will handle Character Licensing after his departure.
Rob said: “The licensing business has given me a very good living and I leave behind many good friends both at Zeon and in the wider industry. I would like to thank the board of Zeon for handling the purchase of my former business with integrity and professionalism. The company is in good shape and my licensing role will be handled impeccably by general manager Esther Jolley.”
Simon Gilham, managing director, Zeon, added: “It has been a pleasure to work with Rob. Zeon has benefited from his wealth of expertise and his contribution to our efforts has been outstanding. We wish him all the best.”
