Penthouse CEO Moose remarked, “Having worked with Tony Cochi for a decade as a colleague in the field, most notably as a partner with the Hustler brand, I’ve witnessed firsthand how amazing he is at what he does. Now I’m really looking forward to joining forces and bringing that same magic to Penthouse. It is our incredible privilege to welcome Tony to the Penthouse family!”
Cochi added, “I’ve worked with Moose for many years as a distribution partner and developed a great respect for what he does. I’m really looking forward to working together with Moose, Drew, and the rest of the amazing team.”
