BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Hustler Hollywood today announced that Dustin Olive has been named director of retail operations.
Olive will directly oversee the daily operations of the 14 Hustler Hollywood stores nationwide, further Hustler brand product development and direct product placement, allocation, merchandising, purchasing and marketing strategy of the retail chain, the company said.
“Dustin brings a wealth of experience and expertise to our team,” said Theresa Flynt, executive vice president of Flynt Management Group, to whom Olive reports. “We’re excited to have him join us at a time when we’re looking to expand our operations and open new stores around the country.”

“I’m thrilled to be joining the folks at Hustler Hollywood,” Olive said. “While their products are still edgy, they’re becoming much more mainstream, and appealing to a greater number of consumers than ever before. The potential for growth is enormous.”
Olive will start in his new position on Oct. 8, and be based in the company’s Beverly Hills offices.
