As the Global Brand Marketing Director at THQ, Lisa was looking to take advantage of the growing popularity of mobile gaming.  THQ held the Puss in Boots license with DreamWorks Animation and had launched a line of Puss in Boots console games in winter 2011 to kids 6-12.  The Fruit Ninja mobile game by Halfbrick was the top selling mobile game in 2010/2011 to casual gamers.  THQ created a partnership with Halfbrick and DreamWorks Animation by sublicensing Puss in Boots to create a Fruit Ninja Boots in Boots mobile game to reach a much larger audience with a larger marketing reach.  Lisa managed the partnership, marketing plan, demos, advertising, in-theatre activity, digital plans and more.
