Young Living has named Ben Riley as acting president. Riley returns to Young Living after serving as a chief sales officer and management consultant in outside organizations. Prior to this departure, Riley was a long-time presence at Young Living, beginning his career in 1998 by working the graveyard shift in the company’s warehouse while he put himself through college. Throughout his more than two decades of experience in the direct selling industry, Riley has also served as Young Living’s Regional President of North America, Executive Vice President of Global Sales and Chief Sales Officer.
“We are so thrilled to have Ben back at Young Living once again,” said Young Living co-founder and CEO Mary Young. “Ben knows our company’s story and history better than anyone else who could serve in this role and I know he will ensure we continue to grow while still sticking to our roots and producing the highest quality products.”
As acting president, Riley will work alongside the executive team, directing company operations to optimize performance and product delivery.
“Throughout all the adventures of my life and career, Young Living has remained constant in my thoughts,” Riley said. “I have deep affection for the Young family, Young Living’s amazing mission, brand partners and markets across the globe, and the hard-working corporate team. Returning to Young Living as its acting president is the culmination of the great story-book adventure I have had with this singularly matchless company I love and call home.”
