Following a round of executive moves in December that aligned Toronto-based Spin Master Corp. under three distinct “creative centers” — Toys, Entertainment, and Digital Games — the company revealed another round of appointments within its growing Entertainment division.
Newly-named President of Spin Master Entertainment, Jennifer Dodge promoted Laura Clunie to senior vice president, development and feature film; Toni Stevens to senior vice president, production and operations; Dan Mokriy to vice president, production; and Jonah Stroh to vice president, creative production.
“In the last 12 years, Spin Master Entertainment has developed into a fully imagined entertainment company, capable of everything from development through distribution, franchise management, and our latest achievement: feature film production,” says Dodge. “We’re fortunate to have an exceptionally talented team who can step into these expanded roles in support of our continued pursuit of developing innovative content that resonates with kids and families globally.”
Together, the newly assembled team will guide Spin Master Entertainment as it develops, produces, and distributes content globally.
The company currently has several titles in development and production, including this year’s PAW Patrol: The Movie, in collaboration with Nickelodeon Movies with distribution by Paramount Pictures.
Spin Master Entertainment also has six animated series that are available across a variety of streaming platforms and networks, including the Mighty Express, Bakugan, and the long-running PAW Patrol which was just greenlit for a ninth season on Nickelodeon.
