Gary's return to Agel is deeply gratifying and represents another huge step forward for our company, said Jensen.
Gary was one of the first people I called when I started Agel in 2005, when I had the idea of suspension gel technology as a way to deliver nutritional products to the body.
Gary played an important role in the launching of Agel. Now, like me, he has come back to the Agel family to help guide it in a new era of growth, Jensen added.
JRJR Networks announced on May 3 that Jensen had returned to Agel, the company he founded a decade ago, after a five-year absence.
We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Gary back, said John Rochon Jr., JRJR Networks' founder.
He was one of the first Diamond distributors at Agel and he helped Agel expand into dozens of countries in those early years. In all, including his time since leaving Agel, Gary has spent 20 years as a leader in this sector. He's one of the most knowledgeable leaders in the entire direct-to-consumer sector.
Hasson has spent the last six years on the corporate side, in senior management positions, most recently as president of a global nutritional direct-to-consumer company.
I'm thrilled to be rejoining Glen Jensen and Agel, said Hasson.
This is a fantastic company with what I believe is an unlimited potential for growth. I also believe that my strength is teaching others how to build a global business while maintaining balance in life and I know that with Glen and his team, as part of the JRJR Networks family, we will achieve extraordinary growth.
Hasson lives in Lindon, Utah with his wife Melissa and six children.
