SANTA MONICA, Calif., Dec. 6, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Hill was named Beachbody's Senior Vice President of Team Beachbody Global Sales today. Mr. Hill joins the company as one of the most celebrated and sought after sales executives in the direct selling industry.
"The addition of Jeff Hill is a significant milestone for Team Beachbody," said Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler. "Our search for a field sales leader who fit the culture and ethics of Beachbody resulted in us getting the one executive we wanted and the one executive others said we couldn't get. Jeff has the experience and the desire to help people succeed, which will take Team Beachbody from 43,000 Coaches today to more than one million in the coming years."
Hill brings more than 20 years' experience in corporate leadership and sales. He has led sales at some of the industry's top health and nutrition companies. Most recently, he served as Senior Vice President of Global Sales for Tahitian Noni International where he guided sales activities in multiple international markets as well as in the U.S. He was President of Shaklee's International business in Northern California and began his direct selling career as Senior Vice President of Sales for Melaleuca. In his seven years at Melaleuca, Jeff was recognized as the driving force behind the company's dramatic growth (now nearly $900 million in sales).
Evidence of his abilities to foster a collaborative team environment focused on training and personal development, Hill served in leadership positions as Managing Consultant at Covey Leadership Center and Area Vice President at Franklin Covey, working with Fortune 500 companies at executive levels. Hill began his career in a private civil law practice. He holds a Juris Doctorate from the McGeorge School of Law at the University of the Pacific in Sacramento and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Brigham Young University.
"Team Beachbody is the first direct selling company to offer its independent distributors brands that people ask for by name. P90X® is a national phenomenon," said Team Beachbody Managing Director, Brett Blake. "Now with Jeff leading our sales organization, I believe we can have a significant impact on helping all of our distributors financially while ending the trend of obesity that plagues the U.S. and dozens of countries around the world."
