Stemtech International, a pioneer in stem cell nutrition and all-natural supplementation, welcomes industry veteran Don Karn as vice president of North American markets. With nearly three decades of expertise in executive sales and network marketing, Karn brings an impressive resume to the team, including eight years with Avon and more than 10 with Shaklee.
“Having the opportunity to work with Don is such a pleasure, not to mention a long time coming,” notes Ray Carter, Stemtech president and CEO. “I’ve known Don since Stemtech was established in 2005, and am thrilled for what’s ahead. To say his background is ‘impressive’ – is quite an understatement. He is a welcomed addition to the team!”
A true veteran in the health, wellness and fitness sectors, Karn is best known for his drive and leadership rapport, firmly advocating the need to maintain strong relationships between corporate and field Distributors. His attraction to Stemtech is rooted in the brand’s commitment to innovations in stem cell nutrition and network marketing.
Prior to joining Stemtech, Karn’s background includes executive sales and management roles with a number of direct sales brands; Avon, Tri-Chem, Incomnet Communications and Shaklee – among others. He holds an MBA from Lehigh University’s College of Business and Economics in Pennsylvania; and is a contributing writer for Networking Times. Home to south Orange County, Calif., Karn and his wife have five grown children.
“In personally knowing several of Stemtech’s top field producers, I’ve had the privilege of keeping up-to-date with the company for the past six years; I’ve avidly followed Christian Drapeau’s work, and am excited about partnering with the team in building forward momentum,” states Karn. “As a youth, my stepfather taught me the value of getting along with people, caring for others and building relationships; his life lesson is the biggest contributing factor on why I feel at most comfortable working with the field – as direct sales is all about building and nurturing relationships.”
