CPLG has bolstered its teams in Benelux and the UK with two new appointments.

Meike de Vaere has joined the CPLG Benelux team as Retail Director for the region, reporting to Brenda Draaisma who was recently named General Manager of Benelux.

 Meike worked at CPLG Benelux from 2008 to 2010 as Retail and Marketing Director, before moving overseas where she held numerous marketing and sales roles, including Marketing & Sales Director for Rituals Cosmetics USA and consultant at global food production company Parabel Food. Now based out of Amstelveen, she will be working closely with retailers across the Benelux region to maximize the CPLG portfolio with a focus on the key fashion sector.

Jennifer Gould has joined the CPLG UK team as Brand and Retail Manager, reporting to Stacy Scimia, Category and Retail Director. Jennifer joins from Global Icons where she was Brand Licensing Manager, working across a variety of brands such as Ford, Emirates, Southern Comfort and Vespa. Based in London, Jennifer will work closely with the UK sales teams to build new and existing retail channels and explore brand partnership opportunities across the portfolio.

Maarten Weck, EVP and Managing Director at CPLG says: “We’re delighted to welcome Meike and Jennifer to the teams. Retail relationships remain a key focus for us at CPLG and both Meike and Jennifer bring with them a wealth of experience and contacts which will allow us to develop new opportunities for both licensees and licensors and grow our business in these key markets.”
