Isagenix International recently announced they will be relocating their worldwide headquarters from Chandler to Gilbert by the end of the year, a move that solidifies the company’s strength in the Valley.
Kevin Snyder, vice president of Corporate Communications and International Marketing Services at Isagenix, said the company decided to relocate after outgrowing their current facility in Chandler.
“Over the past two years, we have had to split up our corporate staff in three different facilities throughout the Chandler/Gilbert area,” he wrote in an email. “Building a new world-wide headquarters that is big enough to allow us to place everyone back under one roof is fundamental to our culture and our continued success.”
Isagenix, a company that prides itself on creating solutions for personal issues ranging from energy gain to weight loss, was founded in 2002 by John Anderson and Jim and Kathy Coover. The company currently has nearly half a million associates worldwide, spanning from the U.S. to Vietnam.
The new location will be located in Gilbert, off of Gilbert Road and the Loop 202, a place where Snyder said the company calls home.
“This is home to our company; we have no plans to relocate outside of the area,” he said. “We are excited about our new facility in Gilbert; the staff is counting down the days — they talk about the new building almost daily.”
The move was projected to add hundreds of jobs to Isagenix’s workforce, many of which have already been filled, Synder said.
“When we first envisioned the new office almost two years ago, we had plans to add hundreds of new jobs, many of which have already been added due to our sky-rocketing success,” he said. “We have grown from almost 400 jobs to nearly 600 at our world-wide headquarters here in Chandler in the past year.”
The company has been located in the East Valley since its foundation, Snyder said, and they will continue to stay for the time being.
“We were founded (in the East Valley) more than 12 years ago and after discussing options of relocating elsewhere, we decided we wanted to stay,” he said. “Our employees live in this area and it was important to keep the new office in a convenient place for them with easy access.”
Snyder said the move should be complete in early 2016.
