The following extract is from the Australian XanGo website.
“….. Aaron Garrity has become an inspiration to creative entrepreneurs worldwide. His many accomplishments are that much more impressive as they took place during a difficult economic environment.
During the economic recession of 2002, Mr Garrity and his partners founded XanGo, a category-creating company becoming the first to bring the mangosteen fruit to the global marketplace.
Under Aaron’s leadership as chairman, president and CEO, XanGo became a story of success and innovation in the direct sales industry, setting new standards of excellence for distributor compensation, communications and use of technology.
…….. Aaron simultaneously earned an MBA and a Juris Doctorate while managing product launches that reached millions in sales for a large multi-national nutrition company.
……………… Garrity sits on the CEO council for World Federation of Direct Selling Associations and the board of directors of the Direct Selling Association (DSA). In 2009, he was named one of the “most influential people in direct sales” just days after ringing the bell on the floor of the NYSE with other industry CEOs. In 2011, at the request of the DSA Board, Garrity agreed to serve as the chairman of member services, overseeing new DSA member applications, ensuring appropriate activity by current member companies and seeking to grow the roster of companies that follow best business practices and ethics.
Aaron has continued to innovate and support new ventures both privately and through Blink Tank, an incubator he created for aspiring entrepreneurs to pitch their start-up ideas. In the midst of the most recent economic downturn, Aaron Garrity has become the iconic hope to the thousands of entrepreneurs who have come to hear him speak as he travels both domestically and internationally supporting private initiatives in the worldwide marketplace.”
