SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Nov. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Massage Envy, the largest provider of therapeutic massage and skin care services in the U.S., today announced that its Board of Directors has promoted Beth Stiller, most recently Massage Envy's Chief Commercial Officer, to Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.
Ms. Stiller joined Massage Envy in 2016 and has more than 20 years of global and domestic experience in retail, branding, merchandising and management. She is a driver of retail and product innovation with a proven track record of achieving results through motivating teams and influencing positive change.
She succeeds Joe Magnacca, who has resigned. Mr. Magnacca acknowledged having engaged in a brief consensual relationship with an employee. He brought this information to the attention of the company's Board of Directors, which conducted an investigation. While the individual confirmed that the relationship was consensual, Joe and the Board determined it is in the best interest of the company and its franchisees for him to step down at this time. The company is deeply committed to upholding the highest personal and professional standards across its business and this was the right action to achieve that outcome.
"We are fortunate to have a proven leader of Beth's caliber and experience to step into the CEO role as Massage Envy continues to deliver against its mission to provide professional and affordable wellness services for our franchisees' 1.5 million members," said Patti Larchet, Executive Chair of Massage Envy's Board. "With more than two decades of global and domestic experience in retail, branding, merchandising and management, Beth has a deep understanding of the brand, the business and the opportunities ahead."
"Massage Envy is an outstanding company and I am excited to take on this expanded role," said Ms. Stiller. "Working alongside our leadership team, franchisees, therapists and suppliers, I look forward to continuing to grow the Massage Envy brand, while fostering high-quality service and a superior customer experience at our locations across the country."
