Designs for Health, Inc. (DFH, Palm Coat, FL) has announced the appointment of former Chief Commercial Officer, Amardeep Kahlon, as its new chief executive officer. The position was formerly held by the company’s founder, Jonathan Lizotte, who continues to serve as chairman of the board and will maintain his connections with stakeholders and practitioners.
According to the company, Kahlon brings a wealth of experience to the CEO role, starting from his tenure as chief commercial officer at DFH, where he has led the U.S. and Canada commercial strategy and teams since last year. Prior to joining the company, Kahlon held leadership roles at Reckitt and GSK Consumer Healthcare, where he was responsible for several health and wellness brands, including Enfa, Advil, Tums, Centrum, Emergen-C and Flonase.
“It is a privilege to become the next leader of Designs for Health, especially following in Jonathan’s passionate and ambitious footsteps. Aside from his ability to grow the business from a small educational services company more than 30 years ago, to create hundreds of jobs and five physical DFH locations in the U.S. and one in both Canada and Australia, Jonathan has built a community of leaders, practitioners and loyal consumers who truly care about wellness,” said Kahlon. “I intend to build on what has already been achieved, remaining loyal to the practitioners who supported the business from day one and continuing to support their patients with our high-quality, researched-backed professional supplements.”
“I am honored to have led Designs for Health over the last 34 years alongside talented individuals who supported us in getting to this point, positioning us for this next phase. I’m pleased to pass the baton to Amardeep, who I know shares in the company’s core values and commitment to designing a well world for all,” added Lizotte. “It is important we continue to evolve as a brand in an effort to transform the healthcare ecosystem and redefine wellness through education, research, diagnostics, product development, and more under Amardeep’s leadership.”
