LAS VEGAS — Vintage classic adult distributor Arrow Productions has tapped Scott Rabinowitz as senior vice president of strategic partnerships and licensing.
Rabinowitz will manage direct-to-consumer properties and work with media and industry partners and vendors to advance the company’s business goals, Arrow Productions said in a statement.
The majority of Rabinowitz's 15-year industry career has been on the front lines of online advertising, adult media and intellectual property compliance, search engine marketing and monetization of intellectual property assets through licensing and electronic publishing.
"I am ecstatic about working with Ray [Pistol], a very strong and knowledgeable partner on all matters of classic erotica, along with his timeless collection of vintage adult films and the associated sexual and cultural brands, intellectual property and artifacts," Rabinowitz said.
"After many years working as a service provider to premium adult brands, this was the ultimate opportunity to ‘switch sides’ and become the merchant. Ray is among the most time-honored content owner/producers around, with great skills and incredible focus as the creative leader of this company. It is an honor to work with Arrow Productions, to protect the value of the company’s existing library, as well as to develop and secure Arrow’s spot in all new markets.”
According to Pistol, president at Arrow Productions, “Scott is a savvy, experienced management and online advertising professional. Self-directed, Scott looks under rocks in in our own backyard to expand existing lines of business and uncover new revenue streams from assets we have, with a sensitive eye on bottom line realities.
"I have been working to fine tune our organization for over a decade and felt strongly that we needed someone with extensive experience with multichannel digital and content licensing and publishing segments in particular to expand the tip of the Arrow.
"Scott and I will collaborate so Arrow can grow existing content licensing and publishing business, grow the license side of things, and enforce our rights as owners and librarians of many culturally significant adult content properties.”
Arrow Productions distributes such movie titles as "Deep Throat," "The Devil in Miss Jones," the "Johnny Wadd" series from John Holmes and "Alice in Wonderland," among others.
