Gary Hollister

    XanGo’s Chairman

    He and his wife, Beverly, have four children and 11 grandchildren. (Beverly is also XanGo’s

    senior VP of business development!)

    Gary graduated Drake University with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, and went to work for accounting firm Ernst & Ernst (now Ernst & Young).

For 25 years Gary worked at Merle Norman cosmetics, 14 years of which he was their president

    and chief operating officer. Under Gary’s watch, Merle Norman’s operations tripled to more than 3,000 franchises, and annual sales went from $60 million to more than $250 million.

The book ―1001 Ways to Reward Employees‖ mentions Merle Norman, recognizing some of the

    measures and programs instituted by Gary and his team. And one of the greatest testaments to his

    efforts is that Merle Norman had numerous employees who logged more than 20 years of perfect


Gary has been president of a number of enormously successful companies, and he formed his

    own consultancy, where he launched the wildly popular Michael Jordan fragranceone of the

    most successful product introductions in retail history.

In 1997 Enrich Internationalnow Unicityrecruited Gary to be its president and CEO, and it

    was there he met Aaron, Joe and Gordon.

Most recently, along with XanGo partner, Aaron Garrity, Gary was named a national finalist in

    the 2006 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year awards.

Beverly Hollister

    Sr. VP, Business Development Some participate in a category; others create it. Some catch up to trends; others set them. Beverly

    Hollister is someone with the vision and experience to marry the category-creator XanGo with

    the global, growing allure of natural, organic, clean skin care. The result is XanGo’s latest

    innovation Glimpse?, Intuitive Skin Care.

A natural evolution for the mangosteen category creator, XanGo’s latest brand innovation has its

    roots in Joe Morton’s discovery of the mangosteen. It was Joe who as a young boy had a glimpse

    of the impact he could have in the world, and that glimpse of the future was realized when he

    first experienced the mangosteen. Now, Hollister looks to continue XanGo’s mangosteen

    category dominance by exploring the fruit’s topical applications and benefits as shared in

    generations of Asian folklore.

Hollister is the architect behind recruiting some of the world’s foremost skin care authorities and

    leading research scientists, from as far away as Japan, to create Glimpse’s proprietary scientific

    formulation featuring BioActiveX3 Complex. Produced from the mangosteen pericarp, the active

    ingredients in Glimpse assure this brand a place at the forefront of newly emerging trends in the

    personal care industry.

    As important as creation is, Hollister’s track record for launching and building brands with distributors’ success in mind is the ultimate testament to what will be possible for Glimpse.

With a broad and accomplished background in the network marketing industry, Hollister remains

    focused on her passion of advancing skin nutrition and wellness. As marketing chief for an

    international direct sales company, Hollister led the development and marketing of five major

    brands ranging from a botanical-based personal care line to a weight-loss system, all of which

    became global bestsellers within weeks of being released and generated sales of more than $200

    million annually.

The key for Hollister each time? Traveling the world and working intimately with distributors to

    completely engage them in the brand, resulting in strong global business growth.

Named as one of Utah Business Magazine’s 50 most powerful businesswomen, Hollister is

    excited by the challenge of creating another seamless global brand opportunity for XanGo. There

    could be nothing more natural for her than expanding on the power of xanthones as found in the

    pericarp puree in this superior skin care brand.

When she’s not launching major brands, Hollister devotes her time to work with the women of

    XanGo to help them succeed. Hollister also is committed to the business community as a

    member of the American Management Association, the National Association for Female

    Executives, Lexington Who’s Who and Cosmetic Executive Women.
