Hot Octopuss appoints Julia Margo as COO

Hot Octopuss has made Julia Margo its new Chief Operating Officer, reinforcing its commitment to breaking barriers and creating sex toys that are both inclusive and promote wellness with pleasure. At this time, Margo will come on board to support the company as it launches a new range of innovative products, significantly broadening its portfolio to cater to the next generation of sex toy users.

Margo co-founded the premium British company in 2011 with Adam Lewis, but has since been working in an advisory role. As Chief Operating Officer, Julia will direct Hot Octopuss’s marketing department and lead its public relations team. Her expertise stems from roles in top UK organisations including the think tank Demos, the consumer group Which? and the medical research charity Genesis Research Trust.

Also a published author on social change, wellbeing and consumer issues, Julia will bring invaluable insight to Hot Octopuss as the company grows its global customer base and focuses efforts on lesser-served markets in the sex toy industry, including disabled and older consumers, with a range of inclusive products that stimulate pleasure and transcend pre-existing stigmas.

Adam Lewis, Co-Founder, said:“I’m so excited to have my partner in crime fully on board. Hot Octopuss has always been committed to pushing the boundaries of the sex toy industry through our award-winning products and our loud and proud marketing efforts. I have no doubt that Julia will be a powerful force in taking us to the next level.”

Julia Margo, Chief Operating Officer, said: “It has never been a better time to turn my full focus to Hot Octopuss, as we set our sights on another year of growth. We’re seeing a convergence within the wellness industry and the sex toy market which, in my opinion, has been a long time coming. Bringing my expertise from the health sector to the table, I am looking forward to working side-by-side with Adam as we bring new products to market, with innovative pleasure and inclusive technology at the forefront of our efforts.”
