“I am thrilled to join Fabacus’ board of advisors, using my 30 plus years of licensing experience to provide guidance and serve as an industry evangelist for the revolutionary platform that provides essential data to IP owners.” Roz commented. “In the new age of incoming sustainability regulation, the extended service that Fabacus has created and offers has evolved from a ‘nice-to-have’ to an essential requirement for brand owners.”

Part of the advisory board role is the ability to translate advice to action and Roz has an innate ability to do just that, supporting companies to scale their business and accelerate growth. Roz’s commitment to Fabacus further endorses our value proposition to the industry and after years of working in parallel, I’m excited for her to formally join Fabacus as board advisor.”
