Since Freedom Health opened its doors in early 2004, the company has
been managed in the hands of a dedicated team, bringing a blend of experience and expertise.
John Hall - President, CEO
After receiving an MBA from Warwick Business School in England, John Hall built years
of consumer products experience with Kimberly-Clark in the US and Europe. He brought this experience to bear when
he founded Mondial Industries in 1991, to bring the Diaper Genie to US markets. Playtex Products purchased the business in
1999. Since then, John became engaged in the Arabian Horse world, which led him to pursue research in equine gastrointestinal
health and nutrition. This, in turn, led John to Dr. Peter Bedding, and the development of SUCCEED® Digestive Conditioning
Program®. This provided the foundation for creating Freedom Health in early 2004.
Steve Willey - Chief Operating Officer
Experienced in finance and operations, Steve's career spans decades, including
management positions with Kimberly-Clark, E&J Gallo, BF Goodrich, and Ernst & Young, among others. Steve is a
CPA, and a graduate of the Advanced Management Program at the Harvard Business School.
