COTR, Inc. is pleased to introduce Shon McLean as the latest addition to its team as she takes on the role of account manager.
McLean joins COTR with more than 14 years of experience in the adult retail industry. Her previous roles include serving as store manager and corporate trainer for a leading store chain. Throughout her time in both positions, McLean played a vital role in driving the store’s success by increasing foot traffic with curated sex-positive events that were welcoming to all shoppers.
Although her studies earned her a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice, McLean felt called to the sexual wellness industry and knew that was where she wanted to leave her mark. In 2018, she ventured to the manufacturing side of the industry and began her career as a brand ambassador.
In her new role as account manager, McLean brings over a decade of experience and understanding of retailer needs, as well as her dedication to promoting sexual wellness with encouraging, open and inclusive education. McLean says she is excited to join the COTR team and her role that will be driven by “building business excellence, brand awareness, and customer focus through integrity and honesty.”
“I wanted to join a team that promotes sexual health and accessible education on all the topics and products that people want to know about,” she said. “It’s also extremely important to me that I’m on a team that is driven and focused on meeting customer needs, while also setting high standards in the industry. COTR exemplifies all these essential qualities and I’m thrilled to be a part of the team!”
McLean says that her goal for her new role as account manager is to accomplish results and explore promotional and product opportunities with existing and new customers. “I want to be able to bring a vibe to my new role that takes our company to a level that has not been matched,” she added.
In her free time, McLean says that she enjoys spending time with her children, traveling with friends, and playing sports.
COTR founder and CEO Alicia Sinclair Rosen was enthused about the company’s expansion and expressed her delight in having McLean come on board. “Shon’s infectious passion, dedication, and experience in adult retail made her a top candidate for COTR and we can’t wait to see her thrive in her new role,” she said. “Her proven track record of thriving in a retail setting is sure to benefit our partners as she shares her expertise for boosting sales.”
