Mr. Marshall, 55, has more than 25 years of experience managing franchising, licensing and joint ventures for global brands. Most recently, he was Senior Vice President and Managing Director, International Development and Operations, for Claire's Stores Inc., where he was responsible for their joint venture and franchise operations across 23 countries.

Previously, he spent six years with Warner Bros. in positions of increasing responsibility, culminating in his appointment as Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Asia Pacific, where he was responsible for expanding their licensed brands in the Asia Pacific market.
