Younique, a cosmetics direct sales company dedicated to motivating and empowering women, announced today the addition of Brian Gill as the company's new Executive Vice President of Marketing.
Gill leads the marketing team responsible for brand positioning, corporate and marketing communications, public relations and digital marketing. Younique Cofounder Melanie Huscroft previously functioned in this role, as well as product development and sales. The addition of Gill enables Huscroft to focus her passion and expertise on these other key roles. As a result, Huscroft is now Chief Product Officer and Chief Sales Officer, in addition to her role as Cofounder.
I've known Brian personally and professionally for a number of years now, said Huscroft. His industry knowledge and marketing experience more than qualifies him to lead our marketing efforts. I can speak to his character and creativity, and have full confidence in his abilities.
Gill joins the Younique family with more than 14 years' direct selling and marketing experience. Having previously worked as a distributor for two direct selling companies and then on the corporate marketing side for five direct selling companies, Gill understands the business and is keenly interested in providing the content, tools and resources that contribute to a Customer's and Presenter's success.
The success and fulfillment of Younique's Customers and Presenters is what I consider to be my top priority, said Gill.
Having spent much of his career at nutrition-focused companies like Nature's Sunshine, Gill has a great appreciation for the importance of one's inner health. However, he is no stranger to the cosmetics and skin care industries thanks to his time working in the marketing and training departments at Nu Skin.
In a statement directed to the entire Younique family—comprising Customers, Hostesses and Presenters—Gill stated: I'll be working closely with many of you and the other members of the Younique corporate team to make sure we provide you with what you need to be successful and beautiful—however you choose to define that for yourself. After all, you are Younique, and that's what we love about you!
Prior to joining Younique, Gill was vice president of marketing communications at MonaVie, where he was responsible for global marketing communication, content marketing, public relations and social media. He received his B.A. in International Relations (Japanese minor) from Brigham Young University, an M.A. in English from Utah State University and a professional certification in Integrated Marketing Communication from the University of Utah.
