Once again, Young Living has found its next top talent within its own ranks.
The Utah-based essential oils company has promoted Ben Riley to Vice President of North America and Lee Bowen to Vice President of Finance. Riley joined Young Living in June as Senior Director of Global Sales, and Bowen came on board in 2014 as Director of Finance and then Senior Director of Finance.
These internal promotions come on the heels of the September promotions of Janay Standifird and Michael Buch, Ph.D. Standifird was appointed Chief Financial Officer after serving as Senior Vice President, Global Controller and Finance, and Buch moved up to Senior Vice President, Research & Development and Product Management.
“We embrace every opportunity to promote from within,” said Jared Turner, Young Living Chief Operating Officer. “Ben and Lee have both demonstrated their invaluable skillsets within their departments, as well as their passion to continue to expand and grow the Young Living business globally.”
Riley came to Young Living with more than 15 years of experience in network marketing. In his new role, he will develop and integrates sales strategies and oversee field leadership support. With more than 18 years of financial experience, Bowen will oversee financial planning and analysis, fraud management, as well as treasury, banking and risk management.
Young Living ranks at No. 20 on the Direct Selling News Global 100, with $1 billion in net sales and 1.5 million salespeople sales in 2015.
