THE WHAT? Younique has named Kristi Hubbard Chief Executive Officer. Hubbard has held the role of President since July this year and her transition to CEO was envisaged at the time she joined the company, Younique said in a statement.
THE DETAILS As CEO, Hubbard will lead the operations of the company and define the ‘next era of transformation’ for Younique. Derek Maxfield, Younique’s Founder, will continue to set the strategic vision for the company as Chairman of the Board of Directors and Executive Director.
THE WHY? Maxfield noted, “In the relatively short time Kristi has been with Younique she has quickly demonstrated the depth and value of her experience as a direct-selling executive leader. Kristi is highly collaborative, engaging and a strong, strategic leader. Her transition to the CEO role has come even more quickly than I expected, which is a reflection of Kristi’s capacity and talents. I am particularly impressed with her engagement with our Presenters and her expertise in understanding the differentiators that make Younique impactful.”
