Hall of Fame

The Licensing International Hall of Fame is home to the most esteemed global licensing
executives of the last three decades, bastions of the industry who have shaped our business.
Every year since 1989, at least one (and sometimes multiple) individuals are selected to join the
ranks of licensing’s best and brightest.

Inductees are selected by a committee of industry executives based on nominations received
from the global licensing community at large. The Licensing International Board of Directors
reviews all recommendations before making a final selection.

This year’s inductees are Joseph Kaminkow, Chief Innovation Officer, Pixie Dust at Aristocrat, who will be presented by President of Raw Thrills, Eugene Jarvis, and Founder, Executive Chairman, and EVP of Stern Pinball, Inc., Gary Stern; Maca Rotter, President & CEO at La Panadería Licensing & Marketing; and Stu Seltzer, President at The Seltzer Licensing Group.

Save the date to see these licensing icons honored at the 2024 Hall of Fame and Rising Star Awards Event in New York City on December 4th. Taking place at Gotham Hall, the event will also spotlight rising talent currently making strides in the licensing industry.
