Ryan Blair, ViSalus's Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are honored to lead the industry in 2012 sales growth percentage and appreciate the recognition we received from direct selling leaders worldwide."  Mr. Blair and fellow ViSalus Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer, Blake Mallen, addressed the audience during the event, speaking to the importance of ViSalus's culture and the impact of its customer-focused, social selling message, respectively.

Mr. Mallen added, "It is exciting and humbling to be the youngest company in the Top 50, especially since we were only in 2 markets.  As a relative newcomer in a group of established and highly successful global competitors, having the forum to share some of the strategies behind the success of our direct-to-consumer selling model was a unique opportunity."

ViSalus attributes these acknowledgments to all of the passionate Independent Promoters and Customers of the Body by Vi 90-Day Challenge and remains focused on doing its part to help take weight off the world.
