Evolved Novelties is thrilled to announce that Steve Sav is joining the company, effective immediately. He makes the move after fifteen years of sales and management experience at Pipedream Products, and ten years of buying clout with companies like Spencer Gifts, Claire’s and QVC.
Sav is nominated for ETO Adult Industry Ambassador in 2020, and feels it’s the perfect time to join Evolved. “Greg [Alves] has put together a world-class sales team that is trusted and respected throughout the adult novelty industry, and I want to be a part of that,” says Sav, who received the XBIZ Senior Leadership Award in 2017. “Also, their toys are incredible. Evolved is pulling out ahead each year with new innovations and unique designs. There’s so much for people to get excited about in terms of putting new ideas on the shelf.”
Sav brings his international expertise to the job, having managed not only accounts in the U.S. and Canada, but also Russia, Kazakhstan, South Africa and Asia. “Connecting with people is what I enjoy most, so I’m laser-focused on the customer’s needs and meeting their expectations. I’ve done store trainings and presentations for groups of five to 150, and they’re always eye-opening, always helpful. There’s nothing like getting in front of the customer at a brick and mortar store.”
“We couldn’t be happier to welcome Steve to the team. His reputation precedes him as one of the top sales people in the sexual health and wellness space, and we’re very excited to have him on board,” says Greg Alves, President of Evolved Novelties. Between Sav’s new position and Evolved’s European headquarters in the Netherlands, run by Raymond Houtenbos, the Evolved team is confident about new opportunities for the upcoming year and their next level of success around the globe.
