Image capture company Magic Memories has welcomed CJ Little as new head of development. The appointment comes as part of the company’s global growth plans for 2018, and Little will be responsible for leveraging technology to deliver products to different demographics across multiple platforms via multiple channels.
“Accelerating technological development at Magic Memories is critical to further increase our competitive advantage over the next 12 months,” said Little. “My focus is to further build out a specialist team that can efficiently create and iterate on a range of advanced products that will drive both engagement and revenue and increase lifelong loyalty and memories for attraction guests worldwide.”
Little joins group head of product Jason Kirby, group VP engineering operations Jeff Vier, and group general counsel Brent Canning, who have joined Magic Memories from brands such as Mozilla, Cradlepoint, and Infoblox. The new hires will work together to deliver bespoke guest experiences that increase attraction revenues and extend the customer lifecycle.
Magic Memories has also added two new members of its board of directors to help guide the business direction and support global growth from a governance perspective. Sanjay Dholokia, ex-CMO of Marketo, will support the company’s strategy of becoming an omni-channel revenue generating business. Jeff Ryan, also head of people for Zynga will ensure Magic Memories remains an aspirational company to work for.
“Having an inside-out approach to design ensures every attraction has its own on-brand end-to-end solution so we can create lifelong memories for guests to treasure for years to come,” said Chris Warhurst, Group CEO, Magic Memories. “And, our new leadership team each bring a strong track record in their fields, and collectively we’ll be able to blend technology, product design, compliance, and efficient operations together to make more people smile, more often, all over the world.”
