Independent digital licensing hub Merlin has promoted Charlie Lexton to the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer, while announcing a number of new hires.

Lexton, who moves up from his previous role as Chief Commercial Officer & General Counsel, will continue to lead Merlin’s licensing efforts with existing and new digital partners. His expanded remit also includes management of the firm's burgeoning data analytics practice.
