In her new role, Sazzman will oversee all of XBIZ’s cutting-edge adult retail media products, including industry-leading publications XBIZ Premiere and XBIZ Sensuals as well as the company's series of B2B retail events.

With more than 10 years of industry experience, in-depth knowledge and solidified relationships within the retail market, Sazzman has been instrumental in establishing the XBIZ brand as the go-to resource for the retail market since joining the company in 2009.

As Associate Publisher, Sazzman will be even more hands-on in fueling the continued success of the XBIZ brand within all facets of the retail market while creating new opportunities to boost and recognize the industry’s success.

Through strategic international media-trades and increased outreach to retailers, Sazzman says she looks forward to further entrench herself in the dynamic adult retail industry and gaining an even closer perspective of the rapidly evolving business.

"While everyone aspires for rapid career growth, few individuals possess the drive, determination, commitment and most importantly, discipline required to realize it," said XBIZ President Alec Helmy. "Since joining the company, Sara has made countless contributions to the phenomenal growth of our company, helping to position XBIZ as the retail industry's top most relied upon and trusted media organization. It's with great pleasure that we announce Sara as our Associate Publisher for the retail market."

“XBIZ’s retail-focused products have seen expansive, refined growth over the last few years that has positioned XBIZ as the definitive source for the retail market,” Sazzman said. “I look forward to continuing to build the XBIZ brand while establishing new bonds and strengthening existing ones to continue to offer clients innovative products and services to keep the industry thriving.”
