An experienced team committed to excellence.

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.

Patrick Warczak, Jr - VP-Marketing
A former advertising executive with experience in consumer and B-to-B marketing, Patrick was part of the agency team responsible for Diaper Genie advertising and promotions in the mid-'90s. He joined Freedom Health in January 2004 to lead the company's marketing efforts, and has since taken on the role of managing the company's sales team as well. Patrick holds an MBA from the University of Wisconsin.

Mark Yoho - VP-Operations
