Columbus, Ohio-based Thirty-One Gifts recently announced that Jeff Dahl, an industry leader who has worked extensively in more than 30 countries, has joined the company as President. Cindy Monroe, the company’s founder, will continue in her role as CEO.
“We’ve worked hard over the past few years to set Thirty-One on a path of long-term growth,” Monroe said. “Jeff’s background, skill set and international experience will complement the strengths of others on our leadership team. With Jeff on board, I am confident we can take Thirty-One to the next level.”
Dahl has more than 35 years of experience working for internationally recognized companies such as The Coca-Cola Company and Lufthansa. He has spent the past 12 years in the direct selling industry. Throughout his career, he has driven growth and delivered bottom-line results across varied industries, channels and markets while balancing company culture and values.

It’s my goal to use my international and cross-functional business experience to lead continual growth for Thirty-One on both a national and a global scale.”
In his new role, Dahl will focus on driving innovation and the execution of Thirty-One’s major growth initiatives.
