Mannatech, Incorporated (NASDAQ: MTEX), the founder of the M5M SM ( Mission 5 MillionSM) social entrepreneurial movement, the pioneer of glycobiology and the leading innovator of naturally-sourced supplements based on Real Food Technology® solutions, is proud to share that Direct Selling News magazine has featured CEO and Chief Science Officer, Dr. Robert Sinnott, in its Top Desk section of its January issue. The article is titled “The Science of Business.” Over his tenure at Mannatech, Dr. Sinnott has applied much of his formal training in the sciences, combined with his career experiences in industry and government, to develop and manage the company’s innovative product line. As CEO, he has applied many of these scientific disciplines in many other areas of the business as well. As quoted in the article, Dr. Sinnott says that, ideally, good business leaders and good scientists both possess creativity, intuition, innovation and the ability to analyze data and spot trends. In the article, he looks at business from a scientifically objective viewpoint, discussing how many scientific concepts apply well to the direct selling business model. Dr. Sinnott shares numerous comparisons in the article such as how today’s businesses are comprised of highly specialized areas, similar to the structure of a cell. He also connects psychological and environmental factors in business to factors that govern natural selection in the wild. Additionally, he observes how the principles of money flow in economics are similar to how energy flows in thermodynamics. Another concept he touches on is synergy. Dr. Sinnott believes that sustainable situations are completely possible where the business, customers and society can benefit through properly structured relationships, as is demonstrated by Mannatech's business model of social entrepreneurship. “Mannatech has done very well working the fertile ground where science and business converge,” said Dr. Sinnott. This is manifested in the company’s large patent portfolio of flagship products, in its Mission 5 Million (M5M) program and in the launch of its revolutionary Ūth™ Skin Rejuvenation Crème last year. In fact, he says, “Direct selling and network marketing business models are particularly rich with potential synergies just waiting to be tapped.” Direct Selling News Magazine has been serving the direct selling and network marketing executive since 2004.
