NEW YORK — A year after Marty Staff went missing from his post as chief executive officer of Hugo Boss North America, he’s been found at Penthouse magazine, of all places.
Staff has joined the pornographic magazine founded by Bob Guccione Sr. as chief executive of its licensing subsidiary, PH Brand Management LLC. The task of rehabilitating the Penthouse name — which is one of the most recognized in the world — will fall on his shoulders. And the fate of the company might as well. Penthouse and its parent, General Media, said in its most recent annual report that its strategy to climb out from under its crushing debt of more than $43 million depends in large part on licensing.
