Cloudco Entertainment is expanding its marketing and licensing teams with a brace of hires to support its brand-new content slate.

Joining Cloudco’s Los Angeles office as Licensing Director, North America is Cristina Villegas. She comes from Disney, where she spent 20 years in various roles and divisions, such as such as: ESPN, Disney Direct Marketing, The Disney Store, Disney Consumer Products and Disney Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products.

Cristina most recently oversaw the Disney Baby softlines licensing business inclusive of apparel, accessories, footwear, stationery and home goods. Villegas reports to Cloudco Entertainment Head of Licensing, Robert Prinzo.

Elizabeth Litten Miller (pictured top) is also joining Cloudco’s LA office as the Head of Marketing. Previously she served as Executive Creative Director at 20th Century Fox Consumer Products and has held senior creative and marketing roles at Warner Bros., DreamWorks, AwesomenessTV, Hasbro and The Walt Disney Company. She has worked on a slew of high-profile brands such as The Simpsons, Harry Potter, Trolls, Transformers, My Little Pony, Mickey Mouse and Disney Princesses.

“We’re over the moon that the uber-talented Elizabeth and Cristina have joined our new company” said Cloudco President Sean Gorman. “All of us at Cloudco look forward to working with and learning from them both and having a lot of fun building these great brands as a team.”

Both new appointments will work across Cloudco’s brands, including the most recent launches. Late last year Cloudco launched two new series, the live-action Holly Hobbie on Hulu and the CGI pre-school series Tinpo on Cbeebies in the UK, and just debuted the all-new 2D animated Care Bears: Unlock The Magic on Boomerang as part of its subscription streaming service in the US.
