CHATSWORTH, Calif.—The very first recipient of AVN's Best Male Newcomer trophy, Nick Manning, has moved on from dropping loads to pimping phones as the newly-appointed spokesman and vice president of ElectronicBling.com, a service that turns iPhones and other gadgets opulent with gold plating, diamond encrusting and more.
"I am proud to call Nick Manning a friend and was thrilled when I learned that he had decided to dedicate full attention to his mainstream acting and modeling career," said ElectronicBling.com CEO Dr. Brian Ruby, referring to Manning's recent signing with mainstream talent management firm Advanced Management.
"I realized that Nick is the perfect celebrity endorser [ElectonicBling parent company] GoldGenie.com had been seeking," Ruby continued. "ElectronicBling.com will benefit greatly from the incessant media attnetion that is focused on the life and career of Nick Manning. Most people don't know that prior to his career in entertainment, Nick Manning was an extremely successful executive at three Fortune 500 companies. With that in mind, I am excited that Nick accepted my offer to join our board of directors and serve as ElectronicBling.com's vice president and general manager in addition to his role as celebrity spokesman."
Added Manning himself, "ElectronicBling.com is a perfect example of the type of company that I desire to lend my image to and to represent. In the dual role of spokesmodel and vice president/general manager, I have the ability to impact the success of ElectronicBling.com in a myriad of ways. One of my initial assignments will be to select a female model to shoot the advertising campaign with me. We are also discussing the possibility of an infomercial."
