The three vibrant components of the logo image converge upon the white "Y" symbolizing Youngevity. These three parts that form the whole, represents the Company's story of threes. From the brand focus on mind, body and spirit; to the hybrid business model of direct selling, e-commerce and social selling -- Youngevity continues to build a company that is focused on being responsive to the pace of change.
"In our 20th anniversary year, we are taking into account all of the forces reshaping our economy, we're transforming our direct sales business model to better meet today's new business reality -- the ways that people work and live -- to positively impact their lives," stated Steve Wallach, CEO and Co-Founder of Youngevity. "With omni-direct, we offer the Youngevity consumer and selling community true flexibility in their interactions and transactions with the Company. People are looking for a personalized, technologically welcoming experience that leverages the new gig economy. And Youngevity offers a gig with passion, personality and community."
