Chandler, Arizona-based Gold Canyon International, a direct seller of specialty fragranced products and styled accessories, has expanded its executive management team. Danyell Browne has joined the company as vice president of marketing and Kim Geringer has been appointed vice president of events and recognition.
Browne has 15 years of experience in the direct selling channel, previously serving in senior leadership roles leading and innovating marketing, training and sales teams. Her experience ranges from traditional network marketing to the party plan model.
“I am honored to be a part of the prestigious Gold Canyon family,” said Browne. “This culture is one that doesn’t happen overnight but through years of hard work. The moment I met [President and CEO A.K. Khalil] I knew that his energy, passion, perseverance and drive to make a difference was something I could get behind. I look forward to working closely with the teams to build on our success. I am an advocate for people and making connections, so I am very excited to get back to a party plan.”
Geringer has been with Gold Canyon for 19 years, beginning as a field consultant and later joining the home office in 2001. She previously served as director of sales and events for the company. In her new role, she will lead the development and implementation of sales programs as well as field incentives and promotions. She will also be responsible for the product development, events, customer service and policy and compliance teams.
“One of the greatest things A.K. has brought to Gold Canyon has been the opportunity he has given the company both internally and for the field,” says Geringer. “The culture created is one that recognizes an individual’s strength and provides them the opportunity to excel. I am so excited about Danyell coming on board and partnering with her for all the phenomenal things that are going to be coming.”
“I was excited the moment I joined Gold Canyon and was very pleased with the closing of 2017,” said Khalil. “As of now, I am even more excited and eager about the future than I’ve ever been in my direct selling career. With the appointments of Danyell and Kim and the initiatives in place, the future of Gold Canyon has never been brighter. I am confident that we have the best team in the industry as we look to reinvent the way direct selling sells.”
