EY recently announced Xyngular CEO Russ Fletcher as a finalist for the Entrepreneur Of The Year ® 2018 Awards in the Utah Region. As the world’s most prestigious business awards program for entrepreneurs, Entrepreneur Of The Year recognizes business leaders who are excelling in areas such as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
“I am truly humbled to be chosen as an Entrepreneur of The Year finalist,” said Fletcher. “The award really could be renamed the ‘Enterprise of the Year’ because it truly takes an enterprise of people to be successful. At Xyngular we have a culture of only hiring A players, and I believe we have assembled the best team in the industry. We really believe in our mission to empower change in our members’ and distributors’ lives and it’s heartening to see our members and distributors doing just that. This recognition is yet another milestone of the Becoming More movement.”
In 2014, Fletcher became CEO of Xyngular and in the past three years has led the company to its most profitable period in company history. Xyngular posted double-digit revenue growth in 2015 and 2016, and in 2017 finished the year with almost 70% growth.
With an engineering degree from MIT and an MBA from Brigham Young University, Fletcher started a distinguished, leadership driven career. He has held director and VP-level positions in companies like XanGo and NuSkin, where Fletcher developed a philosophy based on extreme openness, clarity, and empowering individuals to do more than they believed possible. Prior to joining Xyngular, Fletcher became a nationally-recognized authority on the Agile methodology and philosophy. He has consulted with many companies large and small including Harvard University and the U.S. Federal Government on innovative uses of the system, a system Fletcher has also successfully implemented throughout Xyngular with great success.
Fletcher was selected as a finalist by a panel of independent judges. Award winners will be announced at a special black-tie Gala on Saturday, June 2, 2018, at The Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City. Regional award winners are eligible for consideration for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition. Award winners in several national categories, as well as the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Overall Award winner, will be announced at the Entrepreneur Of The Year National Awards gala in Palm Springs, California, on November 17, 2018.
