Quixtar names new Managing Director


Dear IBO Leader:

Jim Payne, Quixtar and Amway I've had the great privilege of working with many of you over the past two years as Quixtar's Managing Director. Together, we're making great progress in our First Circle transformation to create clear pathways to profitability for IBOs at all levels. But there's more to be done to make this a better business for all IBOs.

While Quixtar has been a top priority for me, I believe you all know I have other responsibilities outside of Quixtar, working with Amway affiliates globally. But the North American market is too important to all of us to NOT have someone leading it day to day with 1% focus.

That's why I'm pleased to announce that we're bringing a new hand on deck to help us drive our business forward – Steve Lieberman, who will join us August 2 as the new Vice President and Managing Director of Quixtar, reporting directly to me.

Steve is an accomplished consumer products executive with more than 25 years of global industry experience. He most recently has been an innovation consultant but spent much of his career at , where he served as Director of New Products, Marketing Director of French Johnson, Commercial Director UK, and VP of North American Consumer Products Air Care and Canadian Operations. In addition, he was President of Pearle Vision for Cole National Corp. and CEO and President of Enzymatic Therapy Inc. Steve is a graduate of the State University of New York and received his masters in business administration from the University of Chicago.

That adds up to a terrific background for a leader who will be asked to help us create a consumer focus, improve our reputation, instill innovation in all we do, and build a bigger and better business than ever before.

We did an extensive national search to find someone who not only brings a strong business background and expertise to this position but also shares the values that have made this company and business so strong. I think you'll find Steve fits the bill on both fronts.

I remain firmly committed to Quixtar and to every one of you as leaders in this incredible business. Steve and the Quixtar team will continue to move the transformation forward with you, and I'll be supporting them and you every way I can. Thanks for all you continue to do to build your businesses and make this a better business for all IBOs.

Jim Payne

Executive Vice President and Managing Director Quixtar Inc.
