USANA Appoints Field Development Chief, Two Executive Vice Presidents
USANA Health Sciences has announced three promotions to its senior management team.
The wellness firm, which recently said annual sales topped $1 billion for the first time in 2016, has tapped David Mulham, former Executive Vice President of the Americas, Pacific and Europe, for the role of chief field development officer. Since coming on board in 2009, Mulham has been key to developing new regions for the Salt Lake City-based company.
“I have had the great pleasure of working closely with David throughout the past several years and have been consistently impressed with his commitment to the company’s expansion and success,” said CEO Kevin Guest in a news release.
Additionally, Brent Neidig, former Vice President of China Strategic Development, has been named executive vice president of China, the company’s fastest-growing market. “Brent has been incredibly instrumental in USANA’s sizeable growth in the China market,” noted Jim Brown, President and Chief Operations Officer.
Before transitioning to the China business, Neidig led the company’s ethics and education team. In his new role, he will continue to manage USANA’s China subsidiary, Babycare, and help to expand USANA’s presence in the market. In full-year financial reporting released last week, management disclosed that USANA is conducting an internal investigation of Babycare. The voluntary review is to ensure compliance with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, particularly as it relates to expense reimbursement and other policies.
The company’s final appointment is Josh Foukas, former Vice President of Legal, who is taking on the role of executive vice president of legal. “Josh is one of the brightest and most strategic attorneys I have ever had the pleasure of working with,” said Chief Legal Officer and General Counsel Jim Bramble. “His expertise has continually provided great value to USANA’s Associates, employees and shareholders.”
Previously, Foukas worked with the company’s finance department, overseeing public reporting, investor relations and business development.
