XANGO LLC has appointed a new president from its own ranks, the health and wellness company announced Tuesday. General Counsel Leslie Gallacher, a XANGO veteran whom Chairman and CEO Aaron Garrity described as groomed for leadership, stepped into the role in May.
“Leslie’s appointment is one that our board, executives and distributor leaders have anticipated for some time,” said Garrity. “From her earliest days at XANGO, Leslie has fulfilled several key strategic roles within our organization and been instrumental in our growth and advancement as a company now in its second decade of global expansion.”
Since joining the Utah-based brand 11 years ago, Gallacher has played a key role in opening the majority of XANGO’s 55 markets. She has also been a leader in the company’s women’s empowerment efforts, such as the Women Building Bridges global training initiative, at both the corporate and distributor levels. In addition to managing departmental functions, Gallacher will initially oversee preparations for XANGO’s international convention, slated for September in Las Vegas.
