Big Teaze Toys Announces Hiring of Karen Raehpour

LOS ANGELES—The Duckman Tony Levine successfully has lured veteran adult novelty talent Karen Raehpour to come and play at Big Teaze Toys.

Raehpour officially joined the team in November 2010 as the international sales and marketing manager, following the departure of Staci Dunn.

“Finally! I have always been a fan of Big Teaze Toys and of Tony,” she said. “For me, working with someone I like and respect is paramount. I couldn’t have dreamt up a more talented team, so watch out industry. You haven’t seen the best of Big Teaze yet! ”

Raehpour has worked in the sales sector in the adult industry since 2000. Prior to joining Big Teaze Toys, she worked with Trigg Laboratories/Wet International as vice president of sales and marketing before taking time out to become a mother to two daughters (a job she is still fulfilling) and then as an account executive at Topco Sales.

“I am damn happy that Karen has decided to join us,” said Tony Levine, Duckman and founder of Big Teaze Toys. “She brings years of expertise and enthusiasm to our team, along with ideas to expand the awareness and availability of Big Teaze Toys products.”

In addition to the appointment of Raehpour, it’s been a busy year for Big Teaze Toys. The company was nominated for numerous awards this year including Best Sex Toy Company of the Year at the AVN Awards Show in January 2011, Crossover Novelty Company of the Year at the XBiz 2011 Awards and Outstanding Product Design for Men for the Man Eater from Outer Space  at the AVN “O” Awards in July 2011.
