CalExotics’ Ferdinand Earns Staff Appreciation Award

ONTARIO, Calif.—CalExotics’ Austin Ferdinand has earned the Staff Appreciation Award from Canadian retailer Aren’t We Naughty.

Ferdinand is the international business development executive for CalExotics. The award was presented to Ferdinand during the annual staff training event in Ontario, Canada.

“This is an honor and I am grateful for the award,” Ferdinand said. “It is a pleasure working with the Aren’t We Naughty staff, and I look forward to my next visit.” 

Ferdinand has worked with Aren’t We Naughty for more than 10 years and has participated in the annual training event for five years.

During the event, Ferdinand trained the staff on CalExotics’ popular collections Inspire and Luxe, as well as top Jopen collections Callie, Opal, and Vanity. The team was especially fond of the sexual health and wellness collection, Inspire. Its bold packaging, unique product selection and connection to a nonprofit organization make this a must-have for each store location.

“We are incredibly proud of Austin!” said Susan Colvin, founder and CEO of CalExotics. “He travels across the country offering his assistance in sales and merchandising to distributors and retailers. It is incredible to see his hard work being recognized. Congratulations Austin.”
