Isagenix International, a Gilbert, Arizona-based global health and wellness company providing nutrition and lifestyle solutions, announced key executive promotions, including naming Travis Ogden as the company’s CEO, which was previously held by co-founder and chairman Jim Coover.
According to the company, the promotions position the organization for continued excellence and growth worldwide. Ogden joined Isagenix in 2016 as president and chief operating officer. He has been an integral part of the executive leadership team, helping refine operations.
“I’m not stepping down or stepping aside, but rather focusing on my duties as chairman of the Isagenix Board while Travis steps into a pivotal role and helps us take Isagenix to the next level,” Coover said. “Travis has proven himself time and again in the past two years. His strategic leadership has earned not only my respect, but also the respect of our nearly 1,000 employees and the thousands of independent distributors who share our transformational products with customers around the world. I am confident Travis will be an exceptional CEO.”
In 2017, Isagenix hit three key milestones: reaching nearly $1 billion in annual revenues, achieving nearly $6 billion in cumulative global sales since its inception in 2002, and entering the European market. The company now has operations in 15 countries.
“Joining Isagenix nearly two years ago is one of the best decisions I’ve made,” Ogden said. “I’ve been so honored to work with the Coover family, who are at the heart of this company.”
In addition to Ogden, the company promoted Travis Garza to president of global sales and marketing and Chantal Chaput to chief operating officer.
Garza has been with Isagenix since 2009, joining the company as vice president of sales for North America. In 2016, he was promoted to chief sales and marketing officer. In his new role, Garza will have expanded responsibilities for domestic and international sales, marketing and communications.
Chaput joined the company in 2016 as senior vice president of operations. As chief operating officer, she will assume responsibility for day-to-day operations and continue to lead product manufacturing and distribution.
“Travis and Chantal have been tremendous assets to the company, earning admiration from their peers, our employees and our independent distributors,” Ogden said. “We’re thrilled for them to assume additional responsibilities. Their leadership will be critical to our success moving forward.”
In addition to these promotions, Erik Coover, senior vice president of global field development, has been elected to the Isagenix board. He will serve on the board alongside his father, Jim, and his mother, Kathy, who is co-founder and executive vice president at Isagenix. Other board members include Travis Ogden and Jim Pierce.
“Erik has done an outstanding job introducing Isagenix to a new generation, and serving on the board will allow him to make an even greater impact on the company’s long-term future,” Jim Coover said.
