The move comes as Igloo moves further into the licensed space with partnerships for coolers based on properties including Star Wars, Scooby-Doo, and MTV.
“We are very excited to have Andrew Perlmutter assume his new board of directors role. He is an immediate asset to the team and the brand,” says Dave Allen, president and CEO, Igloo. “Through the years we’ve seen how he has strategically grown Funko’s business and what his team has accomplished under his leadership. We look forward to leveraging his experience to continue to expand and grow the Playmate category and licensed offerings.”
Perlmutter is the co-founder of Bottle Rocket Collective, a board and travel games company, president of Funko, Inc., and president at Funko Acquisition Holdings LLC.
“I am very proud to join the Igloo board,” Perlmutter says. “Igloo is an iconic brand within American culture. When I think about the brand, it brings back nostalgic memories I’ve made throughout the years and how it’s played a part in my life’s moments. It’s an honor to be part of the team and I look forward to contributing to Igloo’s success.”
Igloo recently announced a new Playmates Pal Cooler inspired by the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ iconic Party Wagon.
