Nearly a year ago, Heidi and Orville Thompson, former president and CEO of Scentsy, announced they would share the title of co-CEO, and former General Manager of Emerging Markets Dan Orchard became president.
“Since we started Scentsy 15 years ago, the two of us have worked side-by-side, leading the growth and development of the company while contributing our own strengths and passions,” explained Heidi Thompson. “Despite having two different titles, we’ve always acted as co-CEOs. So, now we’re making it official.”
As the Thompsons scaled back their day-to-day involvement in many areas, Scentsy executives and their teams operated at a higher level and in a more integrated way than ever before, according to the company. This has helped the Thompsons focus on long-term, high-level contributions that will help shape Scentsy’s future growth in the most meaningful ways, according to the company.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the company said it had closed all Scentsy buildings to the public and increased its cleaning and sanitizing schedules to protect employees. It also implemented ongoing work-from-home schedules for those who are able to perform their jobs remotely.
