MILWAUKEE, Wis., September 24, 2018 – Synara Brown has been appointed Vice President of Sales of Wildtree, the privately-held meal solutions company offering simple, nutritious and natural products and a member of Southwestern Family of Companies.
Raised in Bogotá, Colombia, Brown moved to the United States by herself as a teenager to escape violence and attend high school. A successful high school academic career earned her a scholarship to Mount Mary University in Milwaukee.
After graduating college and starting a family, Brown wanted to find a job that would offer a flexible work-from-home schedule. More than 10 years ago, Brown joined Wildtree, recognizing the company as a lucrative business opportunity that would enable her to take care of her children while also making an income.
“I wanted to align myself with a company that helps people, but also had a compensation structure allowing me to achieve the life I desired. We provide real solutions to the very real mealtime dilemmas busy people face. Our all-natural, organic, quality products and meal solutions drew me in, but it was the culture of top-notch customer service that kept me invested,” says Vice President of Sales Synara Brown. “As Vice President, I will continue to help provide life-changing meal solutions to people, an economic opportunity to those seeking financial freedom and make it my mission to ensure our vibrant company culture stays at the forefront of who we are.”
After joining Wildtree, Brown quickly became a six-figure earner and has been building her individual sales organization ever since. To date, she has personally secured over 70 percent of Wildtree’s $20-million direct sales business. She currently oversees a personal team of 3,000 sales representatives and plans to recruit additional sales representatives to the company. Brown attributes her success to her commitment to consistency and her unwavering positive attitude.
“Synara is a prime example of a classic Wildtree success story,” says Henry Bedford, Chief Executive Officer of Wildtree. “With impressive drive, enthusiasm and sales skills, Synara has built a successful personal business that she never dreamt was possible when first coming to the United States. She is an inspiration to our other dedicated sales representatives across the country.”
Brown will also continue to serve as a Senior Executive Director of Recruiting and Training, working in the field to recruit additional sales team members, train new recruits and helping each representative maximize their personal income opportunities.
Along with recently appointed President Mike Gilkenson and Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Ross Murphy, Brown will help to lead the direct sales company in its campaign to double the size of its network of 5,000 independent sales representatives over the next 12 months, allowing families to spend less time on meal preparation and more time enjoying a meal with the people they love.
