In a recent update on its Agel business, JRJR Networks said the return of Agel’s founder has brought an influx of new consultants to the nutrition and skincare company.
JRJR Networks announced earlier this month that Glen Jensen, who founded Agel Enterprises in 2005, had rejoined the company as Group CEO. Agel was acquired by the direct selling conglomerate in 2013, two years after Jensen’s departure. Like all JRJR Networks companies, Agel has retained its own brand identity and structure, while benefiting from efficiencies on the operations side of the business.
In a statement, John Rochon Jr., Founder and Vice Chairman of JRJR Networks, said Agel has signed on thousands of independent sellers in the weeks since Jensen’s return. “We partnered with Glen Jensen in the beginning of May. Since then, he has brought about 28,000 people to Agel. We’re excited at the prospect of what will happen next.”
Those joining Agel’s salesforce have come largely from Innovative Global Inc., another direct seller of nutrition and skincare products co-founded by Jensen, who serves as CEO. Rochon said the companies have agreed in principle that Innovative Global will also sell Agel products and adopt its compensation plan, using the Agel website.
“Now that Glen is back, we expect the pace of people returning to Agel to continue over the remainder of this year,” said Rochon.
