Ferreiro will handle the creative development for all of Saban’s domestic and international consumer product properties; he had been with Disney, as was Simons, who won five Golden Cine awards for her video work while there. Parsons comes to Saban from the Jerry Leigh apparel company; Caton did a turn at Nestle.
