CHATSWORTH, Calif. — Rob Phaneuf was honored with the Business Development Executive of the Year Award at the 2018 XBIZ Exec Awards held at the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood on Wednesday night.
The XBIZ Exec Awards honor the most influential and motivational leaders in the adult retail category.
Phaneuf, who started with Pipedream Products in 2005, is currently the vice president of product development. The company says Phaneuf has been key in all facets of the company, including inspiring a popular product line modeled after him-the "Midget Man" collection.
"I'm happy Rob has been recognized after so many years in this industry," said Nick Orlandino, chairman and CEO of Pipedream Products. "He has been my loyal right-hand man in a lot of aspects of Pipedream and has been an essential part of my Dream Team."
Phaneuf is committed to creating and bringing the best products available to Pipedream's business partners with his acute attention to consumer trends and constant research. His dedication and leadership within his own internal team are one of the many reasons Pipedream is proud to see him receive this honor, the company said.
"I am humbled and incredibly honored to be recognized by XBIZ and my peers, especially amongst such an incredible roster of candidates who are all doing great things in the industry," Phaneuf said. "I really enjoy working in this industry and doing what I do. I hope that it shows."
