Mark Hornick, president and CEO of Jamieson Wellness Inc., plans to retire on June 1, 2021. Mike Pilato, president of Jamieson Canada, will succeed Hornick as president and CEO, effective June 1, 2021.
"It has been my absolute honour to lead this company for the past seven years,” says Hornick. “Our business has never been stronger, supported by a powerful brand, engaging culture and the deep commitment of our employees. The momentum we have driven over the past few years is still building, reinforcing that we have the right strategy in place to meet our long-term objectives. Mike is highly experienced with a proven track record of excellence and shared vision of improving the world’s health and wellness. Over the next few months, Mike and I will work together to complete what has been an ongoing leadership transition.”
"Jamieson Wellness is a highly respected global company with an amazing, dedicated team and an iconic brand that consumers around the world trust to support their health and wellness needs,” says Pilato. “We have honed the company’s long-term strategy over the past two years, prioritizing international growth opportunities, especially in China, along with fueling our organic growth in Canada. I am committed to building on this strategy and ensuring a seamless transition. I thank Mark and the Board of Directors for their support and confidence and look forward to working closely with the entire Jamieson team to continue driving sustainable growth and market leadership expansion.”
