Nerium International has appointed Rick Arnold to General Manager of Nerium Australia, as the skincare company prepares to launch operations in the market.
Arnold was introduced to Nerium Independent Brand Partners during Get Real Dallas, an annual conference that took place over the weekend. The four-day event featured salesforce training and recognition, as well as a look at what the future holds for the Texas company, which recorded sales of $516 million in 2015.
“One of our most exciting plans for the future is our expansion to Australia, a thriving market for both the global anti-aging skincare segment and the direct sales industry,” said Jeff Olson, Nerium Founder and CEO. “I know we will reach new heights as we welcome Rick Arnold, an accomplished professional who shares Nerium’s values and culture, as General Manager of Australia.”
In a direct sales career that has spanned more than two decades, Arnold has spent 13 years in corporate management, and another 10 years building his own direct selling business with one of the channel’s leading companies. Nerium Australia is slated to open in the fourth quarter, along with a new regional office in Adelaide, South Australia.
