DALLAS, May 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tens of thousands of independent sales force members have been added to Agel Enterprises over the past several weeks as a result of the return to Agel of Glen Jensen, who founded the company a decade ago, JRJR Networks founder and vice chairman John Rochon said today.
Agel, a global seller of nutritional products in gel form and skin care, is part of JRjr33 Inc., doing business as JRJR Networks [NYSE MKT: JRJR].
"We're seeing a powerful surge happening here, what we expect to be the start of a new era for Agel," said Mr. Rochon. "We partnered with Glen Jensen in the beginning of May. Since then, he has brought about 28,000 people to Agel. We're excited at the prospect of what will happen next."
The people who have come to Agel in the past few weeks are from Innovative Global Inc., a direct seller of skin care and nutritional products which Jensen helped found and serves as CEO, operating primarily in Asia. "We have agreed in principle that Innovative Global will adopt selling the Agel products and work under the Agel compensation plan, using the Agel web site," said Mr. Rochon. He said that this week, top Innovative Global sales force leaders, several of whom formerly worked at Agel, enthusiastically endorsed the two companies' alliance.
"Now that Glen is back, we expect the pace of people returning to Agel to continue over the remainder of this year," added Mr. Rochon. "We anticipate that there are thousands of independent sales people in the U.S., Latin America, Asia and Africa who will want to re-unite or join with Glen and with Agel. As a result, we believe Agel has opened a new door for expansion and increased momentum worldwide."
"With such a surge of fresh interest in Agel in the short time since Glen rejoined the company, we believe that a platform for growth is being built. We believe this is very significant for Agel," said Mr. Rochon.
