Lima Sky today announced the appointment of Eric Karp as Chief Licensing Officer. A veteran of film, television, publishing and new media based consumer products, Karp will work directly with founder Igor Pusenjak to develop a creative and cohesive ecosystem of products around Lima Sky’s properties. He will begin by overseeing licensing of Doodle Jump in close collaboration with agent Fremantle Media Enterprises.
‘There have been endless opportunities to license Doodle Jump,’ said Igor Pusenjak. ‘However, we held back because of concerns about uneven product quality. With the right curators now in place, I can’t wait to show the world the amazing new Doodle Jump products.’
‘It’s no secret that Doodle Jump is the last untouched powerhouse brand that has emerged from the world of smartphone gaming and apps,’ said Eric Karp. ‘Three straight years at the top of the charts and over 40 million downloads is the result of a carefully developed content strategy. Lima Sky listens closely to its millions of Doodle Jump fans. It’s crucial that ‘Doodle’ and company find their way into the real world in the right way.’
Eric Karp has enjoyed successful senior posts over the past two decades at Chorion, MGM and Fox Family. Most recently he established the western hemisphere presence for Mind Candy Ltd, owners of the hit multiplayer game Moshi Monsters. He will be on site at Licensing International Expo in Las Vegas from June 12-14 outlining Lima Sky’s licensing plans with potential partners.
