SAN FRANCISCO — Good Vibrations today announced the hire and appointment of Jackie Strano as chief operating officer.

"Having worked for Good Vibrations in its early years, Jackie understands our core values and has extensive operational experience in the adult industry,” said Joel Kaminsky, owner and chief executive officer of Good Vibrations.

In this new position, Strano will be responsible for managing personnel, profitability, forecasting, budgeting, strategic planning, streamlining efficiencies and optimizing companywide operational systems.

She also will be working on staff development, managing short-term and long-range future expansion, tying in operations, IT, web, marketing, sales and brand development.

Strano was part of the initial worker-owner cooperative group following Joani Blank's sole proprietorship of Good Vibrations in the early ‘90s. Her primary duties included supervision, retail operations and training.

Strano was previously employed at lesbian-owned production company SIR, which was voted SF Bay Guardian’s Best of the Bay, featured in the documentary “History of Sex in San Francisco”; featured on HBO's six-part series “Pornucopia” and featured in the U.K. nationally televised documentary “The Truth About Lesbian Sex.”
