Tanit is the CEO and founder of Pineapple Support and Fiascone the head of business development for SK Intertainment and SKinfluential Media.
“I’m honored to host the 2022 XBIZ Honors Awards this year, along with my good friend Austin,” Tanit said. “XBIZ has always been an outspoken advocate of Pineapple Support, and the mental health of our industry more broadly. After two long years, I cannot wait to be with and celebrate so many of our industry’s leaders and trailblazers.”
Fiascone echoed Tanit’s enthusiasm.
“I’m thrilled and honored to be co-hosting the XBIZ Honors ceremony,” he said. “The opportunity to share hosting duties with someone who’s making a real difference in the community makes the evening even more special for me. It will be my pleasure to help welcome the industry back to in-person events this year.”
