LOS ANGELES — Premium pleasure products manufacturer COTR has named Kimberly Scott Faubel as its new sales director.
According to the company, Faubel brings more than 15 years of valuable experience in a variety of roles within the adult retail industry to the progressive company’s dynamic, sex-positive and inclusive team.
As sales director, Faubel will be able to nurture the relationships with COTR’s retailers and contribute to the company’s business while connecting with stakeholders in sexual health and wellness.
“I am really looking forward to working directly with retailers and customizing a vision with our lines for each of them that is as unique as they are,” Faubel explains. “I’m excited to increase awareness; not only an awareness of our brands and products but how important it is to be inclusive and informed when it comes to sensual health and pleasure.”
“This role will allow me to focus on some of my favorite parts of this magical industry,” Faubel adds, “including being able to support an effervescent sales team and collaborate on how we can be the high-quality partners that our retailers and consumers deserve.”
Faubel began her career on the retail side, or as she likes to call it, “the other side of the counter,” of the pleasure industry in 2003. It was immediately apparent to her that she found a home in this business and she quickly climbed the professional ladder of a chain of adult stores in Central Pennsylvania and organized monthly special events that catered to all walks of life while maintaining the district manager position until she relocated to Las Vegas in 2011. Once again, Kimberly found herself assisting the public with their most intimate desires in a sex-positive company that blossomed into the opportunity to help create and sell the very products she was endorsing.
In the summer of 2015, Faubel moved to Los Angeles to help launch a new pleasure products brand. With a hands-on position, she learned that nothing can be overlooked when you want to do something the right way and anything worth having takes time and consideration. As the recipient of XBIZ’s 2019 Community Figure of the Year Award, Faubel has and will always put inclusion and sex-positivity at the forefront of her endeavors.
“Kim’s passion for inclusive sexual and sensual health is undeniable and makes her a perfect addition to the COTR team,” says COTR CEO Alicia Sinclair said. “I’m so excited to be working alongside her and am confident that she will continue to inspire the pleasure-products’ retail warriors with direct outreach and a passion that never waivers.”
COTR recently won the 2019 XBIZ Award for Progressive Company of the Year and is renowned for its sex-positive, inclusive approach, which drew Faubel to the company.
“I have always admired COTR’s message of body-safe products for every body,” Faubel says. “I am drawn to like-minded people who put the focus on improving lives in every way with education, body-positivity, and sexual wellness.”
“Alicia Sinclair has built brands that I am proud to stand behind and the COTR team is inclusive,” Faubel concludes. “When I think of this company, I immediately picture smiling faces, and who wouldn’t be drawn to that energy?”
Founded by Sinclair in 2015 after noticing the need for an inclusive, research-based approach to sextech, COTR has successfully launched three sexual lifestyle brands: b-Vibe, Le Wand and The Cowgirl.
