Becoming Our Best

A MESSAGE FROM CEO FRANK VANDERSLOOT

We are halfway through 2019. I can hardly believe how fast this year has flown by. For that matter, it is unbelievable how fast the past several years have gone by. I am struck by the fact that we have now existed as a company for over 33 years. And although those 33 years have passed much too quickly, it is rewarding to stop for a moment and realize the progress we have made. We have grown from just 7 employees to over 4,000 employees; from just 8 great

products to over 400 products; from a 2,000-square-foot manufacturing space to occupying over 2 million square feet of state-of-the-art facilities; from a few dozen customers to well over a million customers. And now over 200,000 households receive a check from Melaleuca every single month. We have become a global company, paying out tens of millions of dollars every month to families around the world who are spreading our good message of total wellness.

One of the things I am most proud of is our Management Team, consisting of dozens of hard-working, bright, honorable executives who bring the kind of leadership that we can all be proud to follow. I have a great sense of fulfillment when I consider how we have progressed this far, one step at a time.
