With “the Greatest Snow on Earth” and some spectacular tourist attractions, Utah draws a steady stream of visitors year round. Yes, you have Olympic-status ski resorts (why else were the 2002 Winter Games held here?), but tourists and summer athletes can also enjoy visually the striking views and extreme sports of Southern Utah’s Zion’s, Canyonlands and stunning red rock formations.
Could this by why Xyngular has chosen Utah as its home? Yes, but only partially. Seems there’s much more to the state’s motto of “Life Elevated” that resonates with Xyngular’s mission to “change lives for the better.”
Some Interesting Utah Facts:
Russ Fletcher, Xyngular CEO
While skiing and mountain biking are major attractions for Utah, perhaps you didn’t know that the state ranks highly in several other key areas, such as:
Utah is the #1 state for families (with 3.17 average members per household and a median age of 30.2)
Ranked “Best State for Business and Careers” by Forbes for 4 years since 2010 and #3 by CNBC in 2014
Utah ranks #3 for entrepreneurship and innovation in the U.S. (according to the U.S. Chamber)
Ranked the 5th healthiest state (by the United Health Foundation) with the lowest incidence of cancer deaths, 2nd lowest for diabetes and 4th lowest for obesity to name just a few.
Ranks #4 in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) job growth, according to the U.S. Chamber (with industry giants like Adobe, Oracle, Micron and more all having offices just up the street from Xyngular’s headquarters).
So, there you have it. Tourism, tech, trade and toughness all combine to make Utah the perfect choice for Xyngular’s home. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that each of the current key executives was born, raised and educated in Utah (excepting CEO Russ Fletcher who hails from Summit, New Jersey ... but adds, “I got here as quick as I could.”). And yes, each of these executives has 3 or more kids (with CEO Russ Fletcher raising 10 children).
Some have referred to Utah as the “Silicon Valley of Network Marketing” as literally hundreds of direct selling companies either got their start in Utah or now call the Wasatch Front their home. And it’s true the state’s regulatory environment is perfect to support a nutritional supplement company. But there are also several tech companies that have been created solely to provide distinctive software services tailored to the specific needs of network marketing companies in tracking and connecting sales organizations, paying commissions, and handling customer issues.
But, to really get to know a company, their mission and character, you need to look at the top leaders and see what’s important to them (and how this relates directly with their decision to support that culture by settling in Utah). Here’s who is at the helm of Xyngular today:
CEO Russ Fletcher – with a business degree from BYU, he received his master's at MIT and worked at Harvard. His leadership has guided Xyngular to be listed as the #33 business in Utah in 2015. With his 10 kids, he loves to read, tell stories and enjoys being a dad and mentor.
President Marc Walker – received his MBA from BYU and has vast experience within the network marketing industry. He loves spending time with his 3 children and racing fast cars (but not at the same time) and even took the stage with his son during Xyngfest for some wild karaoke.
COO Steve Elder – yet another BYU graduate who earned 2 bus degrees. He understands the importance of smooth operations, paying commissions on time and keeping products in stock. With his 5 children, he is a rabid outdoorsman who loves running and breathing in the Utah mountain air.
Executive Sales VP Curtis Call – brings massive MLM experience with everything from startups to industry giants. With an education from Weber State, he directs the sales efforts and growth of the company, when he’s not coaching his 4 kids in sports and enjoying time together.
With this focus on family, healthy living and making a real difference in the lives of people around the world, Xyngular just concluded its 7th annual celebration event. “Xyngfest 2017” was held in Salt Lake City Oct. 5-7 and provided members of the Xyngular family an opportunity to grow through in-depth training on how to effectively share the company’s products and use its streamlined business systems.
Xyngfest was also a time to network, grow personally and just have fun. While this annual celebration is usually held in other locations around the United States, this year’s venue was chosen to support the family values, clean living and focus on personal growth and goal attainment that are part of the Utah culture. However, company leaders will be taking the message of this year’s celebration out to various locations at smaller events in North America for those who could not attend.
