LOS ANGELES - Veteran adult industry sales executive David Peskin has been named national sales manager for Vivid Entertainment Group and will represent the company to the trade at Pulse Distribution, LLC.

"My goal with Vivid is to stay ahead of the curve in representing the company to the retail marketplace on every level and on every platform," said Peskin said. "I will be working to maximize Vivid's industry leadership as the highest quality producer and the most advanced technological provider with innovations such as Blu-ray and HD-DVD. We also are leading in the diversification of our line through Vivid-Alt, Vivid-Ed, Vivid-Celeb, Vivid Plus, Vivid-Am and the latest, the Vivid-Ha! line of comedic adult features. It's very easy to be enthusiastic about this company."
