Peggie Pelosi, a member of USANA’s board of directors, has been named one of the most influential leaders in the boardroom by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD). The 2021 NACD Directorship 100 list recognizes corporate leaders, governance experts, policymakers and influencers who make a significant impact on boardroom practices and performance.
“It is such an honor to be recognized along with this accomplished group of corporate directors and governance professionals,” says Pelosi, “The resources, education, and network the NACD has provided, along with the talent, expertise, and vision of my fellow board members and USANA management, has been instrumental in my development as a board director and chair of the sustainability committee.”
Pelosi joined USANA in 1999 as the company’s Executive Director of Sales for Canada. During her time on staff, she advanced to other corporate titles, and was also instrumental in developing the program that would eventually become the USANA Foundation. Pelosi joined the Board in 2018 as its first female board member.
“Peggie is an outstanding and passionate leader, and her strategic oversight on our board is truly inspirational,” says Kevin Guest, USANA CEO and chairman of the board. “We are fortunate to have someone like her as a board member, especially as the board committee chair for our environmental, social, and governance initiatives. USANA is a better company now—and will continue to improve in the future—thanks to Peggie’s leadership.”
