BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- WholeFoods Magazine highlights a handful of leaders annually from the Natural Products Industry who are truly innovative and making a difference. TCC's CEO Naomi Whittel, on behalf of the company, was honored with a "Who's Who of Manufacturers and Suppliers" published in the November issue. "This is such a win for the entire TCC organization and a great moment of pride for our manufacturing team in Utah," Whittel said. The honor was bestowed on only six manufacturers in the natural products industry.
"Naomi Whittel: From Entrepreneur to Big Time CEO"—The young entrepreneur broke open the resveratrol market in the United States, grew her business to multimillion dollar sales within five years, became a force to be reckoned with in some B2C markets, and in March 2016 became CEO of one of the largest natural supplements companies in the country, all while being a devoted mother to four young children.
"What may seem to be an impossible feat to most people is fully within the grasp of Whittel, which is why she is a perfect pick for the 2016 Who's Who of Manufacturers and Suppliers honor." – WholeFoods Magazine.
Whittel founded Reserveage Nutrition in 2009 and the company was acquired by Twinlab Consolidation Corporation (TCC) in October of 2015. A few months later, she was asked to take the reins as CEO of TCC.
As a bold step to bring greater transparency to the entire industry Whittel set a precedent in August by inviting Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes to the Twinlab manufacturing facility. According to Reyes, they were the first company in the state to host him in this way—with open arms. "Right now with consumer trust being so incredibly low and with our industry having so many issues around a lack of transparency, the attorney general of anyone's state is an extremely important relationship to have," says Whittel, and adds that Attorney General Reyes' visit to the Twinlab plant was "one of the most wonderful days for our organization."
Given the size of Twinlab's platform, Whittel feels that it's her responsibility as the new CEO to help usher in positive growth for the company and the entire industry. She hopes to move the industry to the next level with collaboration, because she believes it "enhances the power of any industry and the individual. What grows the industry is collaboration, where we feed off of each other and ultimately provide higher quality, science-based gold-standard products into the consumer marketplace."
"There are fewer and fewer nutritional brands that make their own products and Twinlab remains an exception," says Whittel. "We're proud of our meticulous supply chain, which produces hundreds of premium products made in the USA that are consumed by millions of people every year worldwide. This is how Twinlab has created a brand trusted by retailers, consumers and partners in over 55 countries since 1968."
