“Paul Guyardo will be a great addition on the Nutrisystem board,” says Mike Hagan, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Nutrisystem. “His experience driving DIRECTV’s growth, his marketing skills and expertise, as well as his passion for consumer businesses will be enormously valuable to the Board as we set strategy for the Company. Paul has led DIRECTV’s sales efforts across a range of different distribution channels including consumer direct, retail, and through partnerships and alliances. He focuses intensely on reduction of consumer churn and has built a strong online presence for DIRECTV that serves as a destination for its customers.
