Management Change at WizKids
Published: 03/25/2012, Last Updated: 03/26/2012 04:57am
Top management at NECA game company WizKids Games has changed after the recently concluded GAMA Trade Show. The new President of WizKids Games, Inc. is Justin Ziran, who’s held various marketing positions at WizKids both when it was owned by Topps Company and in its more recent incarnation as a subsidiary of NECA, most recently Vice President of Brand Marketing.
Ziran replaces Lax Chandra, who was President of WizKids since 2006. Chandra came to WizKids from then parent Topps, where he’d been Director of Business Development and Director of Internet before he was assigned to run WizKids. Chandra left WizKids to pursue other interests: an unrelated Internet start-up.
