Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) has kicked off 2020 by opening its first-ever dedicated office in Poland.

“We are very excited to set up a new office in Poland’s capital city,” said Julian Moon, senior vice president EMEA, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “The potential for expanding our consumer products and licensing business in Eastern Europe is immense. We know that the top-tier properties we are representing have already proven to have incredible resonance in Poland. Having talented people on the ground will allow us to enhance our retail relationships and further explore many more opportunities throughout the country and the region.”

The new office will give the company a foothold in the burgeoning Eastern European market. WBCP will concentrate its efforts on leveraging WarnerMedia’s massive portfolio of franchises.

To staff the new office Dorota Pawlowska has been appointed as the new director of Licensing & Retail. Joining from Cartoon Network where she held the position of Licensing director for Central Eastern Europe, Dorota has a long track record of innovation and creativity in the licensing business and will leverage her years of experience within the Time Warner business to establish WBCP’s new footprint in the country.
