The Merchantwise Group has announced the appointment of event and licensing veteran Anton Berezin to the newly created role of Managing Director of its branding, creative and digital studio, Three Scoops.
In his role as Managing Director of the studio – which includes Disneyland Paris and Jack Links in its client portfolio – Anton will focus on growing the Three Scoops division at a global level. He will also expand the range of products and services offered by Three Scoops, including in the areas of experiences and brand activations.
Prior to his Three Scoops appointment, Anton was the founder of Entertainment Store/Life Like Touring, one of the world’s leading brand entertainment producers.
Anton boasts extensive experience in the fields of theatrical and experiential events within both the ticketed and non-ticketed event markets, having partnered with The Merchantwise’s Group licensing division, Merchantwise, a number of times. Anton’s tenure as Founder of Entertainment Store/Life Like Touring saw him develop long and distinguished relationships with leading IP owners including Warner Brothers, Viacom, Sony, Disney, Hasbro, and Mattel.
In 2016 he sold Entertainment Store/Life Like Touring to TEG and finished up as Managing Director in the three years following.
Over the course of his career, Anton has fostered enduring partnerships and friendships at the highest levels in the live entertainment, content creation, intellectual property licensing, retail, and franchise industry sectors.
“After 20 years of partnering with Merchantwise in the live event space, I’m absolutely delighted to join this bustling, bold and wonderfully creative organisation in the role of Three Scoops Managing Director,” Anton says. “The Three Scoops creative team is absolutely world class, and I’m excited to take the business in innovative and new directions.”
