Nu Skin Taps Former Amazon Exec for CFO Post
Nu Skin has filled out its new leadership team with the appointment of Mark H. Lawrence as Chief Financial Officer.
As announced in January, the company’s former finance chief, Ritch Wood, has taken on the role of chief executive officer. Longtime CEO Truman Hunt has transitioned to vice chairman of the board, effective Monday. Ryan Napierski, formerly president of global sales and operations, is now president of the beauty and wellness firm.
The new CFO, Lawrence, joins Nu Skin with a 20-year background in operations and finance. From 2013 to 2016, he served as head of finance at Amazon Lab126, the team behind Amazon’s Kindle e-readers, Echo smart speaker and other devices.
“Mark brings a wealth of leadership experience and an in-depth knowledge of finance and operations that will provide strength to Nu Skin and our senior management team,” said Wood. “In addition, his extensive experience in leadership positions at multiple publicly traded companies provides Mark a strong foundation to understand and leverage the opportunities ahead for our company.”
Beyond Amazon, Lawrence has held senior finance roles with a string of other tech-savvy companies, including Silicon Valley-based Polycom and Brocade, as well as Utah-based Vivint Smart Home. He joins the Nu Skin team effective March 27.
