Making a Mark in the Licensing Industry and Beyond

The Licensing Hall of Fame honors industry veterans who have made unique and outstanding contributions to the business. In 2011 Brodsky joined a select list of only 36 inductees-including Walt Disney, Charles Schulz and Pete Rozelle-since LIMA began recognizing these giants in 1989.

Marketer of the Year 2003

Ten years ago, Leigh Anne approached LIMA the Licensing industry's trade association, to make CBTF, the Children's Brain Tumor Foundation its charity of choice.

I experienced Leigh Anne’s creative and leadership skills as she led the licensing industry to raise over $5M in direct donations with 18 hospitals participating hospitals worldwide.

She accomplished all this while holding the top jobs at major entertainment companies.
