LOS ANGELES — XBIZ is pleased to announce that it has tapped adult industry veteran Benny B to head its European business initiatives.
A longtime member of the European online adult industry, Benny is best known as the organizer of the popular Oktoberfest Gathering in Munich, which draws leading members of the industry from all over the world.
“I’m very excited about this new role and would like to thank the XBIZ family for providing me this opportunity,” Benny B said.
“With our expansion into Europe, it's important that we have representation from an experienced and trusted member of the European community,” XBIZ President Alec Helmy said. “Benny was at the top of our list, and we couldn’t be happier to have him as an integral part of our team.”
Benny B said one of his goals is to take the 2012 XBIZ EU London conference to the next level in terms of overall value and quality.
“Organizing networking events in Europe such as the Oktoberfest Gathering and XBIZ EU has always been my passion,” he said, adding that these events provide the grounds for industry members from North America and Canada to leverage themselves into the European marketplace.
"It is a natural fit for Benny to be part of the XBIZ team,” said Kristen Kaye, XBIZ’s executive director of business development. “With his commitment to the adult business community and his expansive relationships in Europe, we couldn’t be happier to be working with him to further broaden XBIZ's international reach.”
Benny B, with many years of industry experience, has held various positions in the European adult market, working for a leading payment service provider catering to the adult industry and helming a large European affiliate program as CEO.
“I’m a true European by heart, and it is our mutual task to establish a new standard of professional networking within the European marketplace,” Benny B said.
With his extensive experience and background, Benny B said he is looking forward to meeting the unique needs of those who conduct business in the European market.
“We are very pleased to have Benny onboard,” XBIZ Events Director Moe Helmy said. “Through his extensive knowledge, expertise and contacts throughout the community, Benny will undoubtedly empower XBIZ to best serve Europe.”
