The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation has named Stephanie Pierotti as its new vice president of licensing.
Pierotti most recently served as the vice president of marketing for Scott Brothers Global, where she oversaw all licensing, publishing, brand expansion and marketing initiatives for Scott Living, The Scott Brothers and Scott Brothers Entertainment. Pierotti grew the Scott Living licensing program from a single licensee, single retailer business, to a 12-licensee program generating over $200M annual sales. As the vice president of licensing for the Foundation, Pierotti will lead the department’s efforts in making Wright’s timeless designs accessible to the public worldwide, with high quality products and a diverse group of licensees.
“We’re excited to have Stephanie join our team and help us bring Wright’s ideas and designs into homes and lives,” said Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation President and CEO Stuart Graff. “The Foundation carries Wright’s idea of democratizing design forward through its licensing program, and Stephanie’s experience in developing new products and retail programs will help us accelerate that aspect of our mission.”
Previously, Pierotti managed brand expansion programs from Yahoo! and Match.com, and licensed merchandise programs for Hot Topic and Bandmerch. Pierotti began her career as an Artist Development Representative with Universal Music, and has a bachelor’s degree in journalism with a double concentration in public relations and advertising, and a minor in marketing.
Pierotti also served as an adjunct instructor in The Art Institute of Las Vegas’ Marketing and Entertainment Management B.A. program, where she taught classes in brand strategy, product development and merchandise management.
“I am incredibly excited to join such an innovative and passionate team,” Pierotti said. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to help the Foundation grow the licensing program by finding new ways to connect with Wright enthusiasts, as well as increasing awareness of his legacy by introducing Wright’s design aesthetic and spirit of innovation to new generations.”
