Bringing a Wealth of Adult Retail, Sales & Marketing Experience, Faubel Finds Home at Progressive, Sex-Positive Manufacturer.
Premium pleasure products manufacturer COTR, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of Kimberly Scott Faubel as the company’s newly minted sales director. Bringing more than 15 years of valuable experience in a variety of roles within the adult retail industry, Faubel joins the progressive company’s dynamic team of sex-positive and inclusive people.
As Sales Director, Kimberly will be able to nurture the relationships with COTR’s retailers and contribute to a booming business while connecting with the very foundation of 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 said. “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, 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.”
Kimberly Scott 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 had found her home in this business. 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, Kimberly 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, Kimberly has and will always put inclusion and sex-positivity at the forefront of her endeavors. This business is not about gender, it’s about wellness, and she’s incredibly proud to be at home with the COTR team who feels the same way.
“Kim’s passion for inclusive sexual and sensual health is undeniable and makes her a perfect addition to the COTR team,” COTR, Inc. founder and 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, Inc., which recently won the 2019 XBIZ Award for Progressive Company of the Year, is renowned for its sex-positive, inclusive approach. According to Faubel, it was the company’s values that drew her to the role.
“I have always admired COTR’s message; body-safe products for every body,” she said. “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 — 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, Inc. has successfully launched three sexual lifestyle brands: b-Vibe™, Le Wand™ and The Cowgirl, each bringing thoughtful innovation to a long outdated category.
