LEHI, Utah, July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Global wellness and network-marketing leader XANGO, LLC today announced the appointment of two company founders to key new roles: Joe Morton will serve as president of XANGO Americas & Australia, and Kent Wood takes on the role of president of XANGO Europe, CIS & South Africa.
"XANGO's story of success for over a decade is as a category-creator where leaders at every level – in the field and in the company offices – personally invest and take action to help others succeed. As founders and board members for over a decade, Joe and Kent have dedicated themselves to that mission," said XANGO Founder, Board Chairman and CEO Aaron Garrity.
"Growth for every distributor is at the core of our XANGO Bold Strides initiative. With these new roles, Joe and Kent will work hand-in-hand with our distributor leaders in these regions as well as our board and employees to ensure optimal service to every distributor working to grow their XANGO business," said Garrity.
While living in southeast Asia years ago, Joe Morton's discovery of the mangosteen fruit as a global product opportunity inspired the launch of XANGO® Juice and a new category of nutritional supplements. A passionate advocate of the network-marketing lifestyle, Joe has dedicated his executive career to driving a global evolution in distributor relations, building dialogue with leaders at every level of XANGO's vast network. A six-time Ironman competitor named by a magazine as Utah's "Fittest Executive," Joe is known for his tireless efforts on behalf of XANGO's 2 million distributors worldwide.
Kent Wood spent most of his career auditing, consulting or being employed by some of Utah's most successful multi-level marketing companies. One of XANGO's six founders, his many years of experience prepared him for his role as XANGO's original CFO. Since then, Kent has served in many capacities, namely XANGO's COO, President of Operations and President.
Kent also held the honor of being named one of Utah Business Magazine's 40 Under Forty in 2008, an annual award that recognizes some of the most successful and significant businessmen under the age of 40 throughout the state.
