The former CEO of 4Kids Entertainment didn’t stay retired long. Al Kahn moves from running the Toonzai network to serving as an exclusive consultant for Pacific Entertainment’s Baby Genius. After leaving 4kids in January of 2011, Kahn dodged a number of woes to recently fall upon the company; 4Kids filing for bankruptcy and a messy legal battle over the Yu-Gi-Oh! brand. Now, Kahn hopes to bring his years of experience in the children’s field to the up-and-coming potential of the Baby Genius brand.
“We are proud to welcome Al to the Pacific Entertainment team and pleased that he sees the tremendous growth potential in our company and the Baby Genius brand. The management team has been together developing the brand for the last decade, and we are excited about the potential to accelerate our growth. Mr. Kahn will bring great energy to our effort, as he works to develop additional children’s edu-tainment and branded educational opportunities for Pacific Entertainment.” -Klaus Moeller, Pacific Entertainment CEO
“Baby Genius is one of the leading children’s edutainment brands in the industry, with great products, expanding distribution, and wonderful licensing relationships. I look forward to facilitating the development of new programs, intellectual properties and products that help children get a head start in life. This new role is an exciting opportunity to combine my career expertise and personal passion to help children develop into successful adults.” -Al Kahn
