David Stirling announced he will step down from his role as dōTERRA CEO to serve as a Mission President for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints beginning in the summer of 2022. Succeeding him will be Corey Lindley as CEO and Emily Wright as President. Greg Cook will now preside as chairman of the board.
“Service is in the DNA of who we are as dōTERRA,” said David Stirling. “I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity to serve as a mission president for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. During our three-year service, my wife and I will supervise and train missionaries and serve church members and the community in the geographic area where we will be assigned. I will greatly miss my many friends at dōTERRA and being involved in the day-to-day happenings. I have the utmost confidence in the other founding executives as they continue to carry on the great work of dōTERRA. Our strength has always been in our team. I have full confidence that Corey and Emily will continue guiding the company to new heights.”
Lindley is a seasoned direct selling industry executive, with more than three decades of experience in the channel. In his new role, he will be responsible for the overall operations of the company, and will lead implementation of the board’s vision, mission and strategic direction.
Wright brings more than two decades of management and leadership experience and will now oversee all categories that impact Wellness Advocates and customers.
“David Stirling has been my trusted business partner, friend, and confidant for many years,” said Emily Wright. “His belief in me has transformed the way I view myself, and I have no doubt that he will do the same for the people he will be serving as mission president. I look forward to the day that we will be able to work more closely together again. In the meantime, there is much dōTERRA is poised to yet accomplish, and I’m more energized than ever to be part of that journey.”
