Keeping pace with rapid growth, Young Living Essential Oils has expanded its corporate sales team with a number of promotions and new hires.
The Utah company recently announced the promotion of seven key sales managers, including Eddie Silcock, who will head up the team as Senior Vice President of Global Sales. In his previous role as Vice President of North America, where Young Living derives the bulk of its sales, Silcock helped propel the company to record revenue of $1 billion in 2015. Before joining Young Living, he spent more than two decades with another top direct selling brand.
Three additional promotions focused on Young Living’s business in Asia. After a decade with the company, Will Halterman is stepping into the role of Vice President of Southeast Asia. His previously served as General Manager of the region and, before that, of Australia and New Zealand. Tyler Williams, with the company since 2009, has been named General Manager of Greater China, where he has been instrumental to opening and growing new markets in the region. Additionally, Yu Oki will now serve as Country Manager of Japan.
Rounding out the company’s new leadership structure is Joey Nanto, Vice President of United Kingdom, who oversaw numerous market openings in his former role as Vice President of International. Gabriel Sanchez, who joined Young Living in 2015, has been named General Manager of the Latin American region, while Mildred Muniz will seek to grow the company’s Latino customer base in the U.S. as Director, Latino Market.
“Young Living has experienced exponential growth on a global scale for the past few years, which can be attributed in large part to these key individuals,” said Jared Turner, COO. “Alongside our wonderful members, these leaders have contributed to our growth and are deserving of their new roles.”
Management said that, in addition to strengthening its global sales team, Young Living has divided its largest market, the U.S., into three regions and hired on a sales director to lead each one.
