CHICO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2011) - Star Nutrition, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: STAU), a California-based diversified health and wellness industry firm, has announced today that it has appointed Matt Itamura as the National Sales Director for its Incrediwear division. Itamura brings years of retail apparel and marketing experience to the Incrediwear brand, with vast experience and knowledge of such retailers as Walmart, JCP, Macy's, Urban Outfitters and Ross.

"We are looking forward to developing strategies and expanding into new retail channels," said Star Nutrition CEO Jackson Corley. "Matt's experience and connections are going to help us tremendously as we expand our brand into the medical, sportswear and military industries."

Itamura's responsibilities will cover all sales functions for the entire U.S. while assisting in driving the company's long-term business strategy and execution. In addition to Itamura's retail and sales experience, he also brings with him extensive athletic experience and knowledge in cycling, motocross and running -- sports of which athletes benefit greatly from Incrediwear products.
