Licensing International has announced that two executives, Carla Silva and Rebecca Tatlock, joined its Foundation Board, effective July 1st, 2022.


“We are so happy to welcome Carla and Rebecca to our Foundation Board. Their diverse experiences and invaluable knowledge will support the Licensing International Foundation’s charitable initiatives and the brand licensing community at large,” said Maura Regan, president of Licensing International. “I want to thank outgoing Foundation Board member Marc Schneider, who moved to Licensing International’s Board of Directors, for his time and dedication to our community.”


In 2020, The Licensing International Foundation announced its new mission to focus on the education of future licensing leaders through the Licensing International Scholarship Program. This program awards grants between $2,500 and $10,000 to deserving individuals interested in a career in brand licensing.


The recipients of the 2022 Licensing International Scholarship Program are Lara Kotb, Laura Judit Fekete, and Stefan Sabur. Kotb and Fekete received the inaugural Alby Amato Scholarships, funded by Mad Engine.


The next Licensing International Scholarship Program fundraiser is Licensing International’s Hall of Fame luncheon. The event will take place in NYC on December 7 at Gotham Hall.
