LOGAN, Utah — Mark Thatcher, a veteran of the direct-to-consumer sales channel, has joined Maven as vice president of business development.
Maven, which continues expanding into new categories and sales channels, said Thatcher is well-positioned to bring the company additional growth opportunities.
“We are thrilled to have Mark’s expertise on the team as we focus on a more holistic online strategy,” said Steve Douglas, vice president of online sales. “He brings a demonstrated history in the consumer goods industry and is a strong leader. In the short time he has been with Maven, I’ve seen him bring interdisciplinary teams together around a shared vision and make incredible progress on company initiatives. It’s an exciting time to be on the Maven team.”
Thatcher’s track record of leading successful direct-to-consumer strategies lends support to both retail and online partner initiatives. He previously worked in the fitness industry with top brands like NordicTrack, ProForm and others.
He is filling a key role as Maven looks forward to launching Dr. Oz Good Life later this month, a new partnership with Dr. Mehmet Oz focusing on innovative sleep products and new, cutting-edge sleep technology.
