Plexus Worldwide, a Scottsdale, Arizona-based health and wellness company focused on health and happiness, has expanded its organizational structure by adding Janice Jackson and Christopher Pair Garza to its executive team.
Jackson will serve as president of sales and marketing, while Garza will be president of operations and international.
“The overall realignment of departments and reporting structures is designed to streamline processes and improve interdepartmental coordination as the company continues its explosive growth and expansion into new markets,” said Tarl Robinson, CEO and founder of Plexus Worldwide. “The new leadership additions and more efficient company structure allows Plexus to fully utilize its talented executive and department leadership.”
Jackson joins as president of sales and marketing and will oversee the marketing Department, sales organization, product research and development, and customer service. She has an extensive background as an executive in the direct selling and consumer products industries, including her role as vice president of global brands at one of the top direct sellers where she honed her wellness and beauty product category skills across 85 markets. Most recently, she was a member of the executive suite at a U.S.-based direct selling company where she was responsible for global product development, brand and marketing, corporate affairs and consumer insights.
“Plexus’ excellent reputation in the market and within the direct selling industry was a huge attraction in my desire to join Plexus,” Jackson said. “Bringing these departments under the same structure will make the company even stronger and more consistent as it shares its values and top-quality products with customers and Ambassadors.”
Garza joins as president of operations and international. In this role, he will oversee distribution and logistics, finance and accounting, information technology, legal, compliance–quality, project management and international. Garza is a recognized expert in global operations and international expansion, and his career includes more than 15 years at a multibillion-dollar direct selling company where he led the organization’s successful international expansion, eventually taking the role of president and CEO. Plexus retained consulting services from Garza in mid-2016 through the present to help with international planning.
“Having already been part of a billion-dollar company’s growth and helping it expand into new international markets, I’m very excited to bring my experience to Plexus,” said Garza. “What Plexus has achieved in only 10 years is truly impressive and I’m excited to work with this talented team as it enters its second decade.”
Plexus also announced that President Alec Clark will add founder to his title, as he was part of the 2013 corporate restructuring. Robinson also added founder to his title of CEO.
“With the additions of experienced leaders such as Christopher Pair Garza and Janice Jackson, and the unified re-structuring, Plexus is poised to continue on its incredible growth trajectory and further solidify its position as a legacy company for the foreseeable future,” said Clark.
