Valéro Enterprises CContinues to Acquire top licenses
Valéro Enterprises continues to acquire some of the top licenses in both the fashion and lifestyle space.
Started in 2006 by industry expert Susan Valero, Valero Enterprises offers clients full branding services including licensing, marketing/sales, design concept and art direction, retail strategy, contract negotiation and brand expansion strategy. Her 5 person team offers expertise in each of these areas and creates a 360 branding experience for its clients. “My aim in creating my agency was to service brand owners and agencies who own brands. My team of professionals identify top brand partners and bring on strategic licensees/manufacturers. We also specialize in creating co-branding opportunities and retail exclusives. If a company does not have a branding team in place or top level contacts, that’s when we step in.” says Valero.
Susan Valero’s career started in the cartoon and animation space with her heading up the licensing efforts on brands including Cathy, Doonesbury and Calvin and Hobbes. She later returned to the Cathy branding program as co-founder of Guisewite Studios.
