Serving as the company's CEO since its creation in 2016, Nazarian expanded the brand from a single product category, to creating an ecosystem of premium wellness products for the mind and body.
Under his direction, Therabody also grew from a direct-to-consumer business to a global omnichannel wellness technology leader. As executive chairman, he will lead global business strategy, business development, product development and partnerships.
"We are working to change the way people think about their health and wellness so that they proactively take care of themselves and stop accepting pain as part of life," says Nazarian. "I am very excited to have Monty join us to help us achieve this goal. Having someone with Monty's expertise and track record join our company is a testament to our market leadership and speaks to the opportunity ahead of us."
