Former Nickelodeon Staff Members Find New Roles At 'Red Kite Animation' And ZeptoLab

From Animation Insider:
Leanne Preston, a six-year veteran of Nickelodeon, joins Red Kite Animation (Edinburgh, Scotland) as Development Manager, where she will spend much of her time looking for new series and project concepts to add to the development clipboard. Red Kite is currently developing a promising children's series by the name of The Adventures of Bradley. Preston has already put a development strategy in place, according to the studio, and is looking to actively expand the company's intellectual property portfolio.

Over at ZeptoLab, Tanya Haider comes on board as Head of Licensing and Merchandising. ZeptoLab is a mobile gaming developer for iOS and Android-enabled platforms. Haider, by extension, will be tasked with building awareness and user support for the company's tentpole application (Cut the Rope) and its cartoony characters. Haider has already named Bob Traub (Established Brands Licensing) and Robert Miller (Studio Licensing) to help represent the brand in North America. Previously, Heider served with Nick and Viacom international consumer products.
During former Nickelodeon Development Executive Leanne Preston's time at the kids' network, Nickelodeon, she worked on the development and production of original content globally for a range of projects, including the successful the BAFTA nominated hit Nickelodeon show "House of Anubis", which is Nickelodeon's first US live action show to be produced outside of North America.
