Young Living Essential Oils has announced that its storied Co-Founder, Gary Young, is stepping down from his role as CEO. His wife, Mary, the brand’s Co-Founder and Executive Vice President, will take on leadership of the company.

Mary has served on Young Living’s corporate executive team for the past two decades. In a nod to her personal and professional work, Utah Business magazine recently named Mary one of 30 Women to Watch. Her promotion positions Young Living as the largest female owned and operated company in Utah.

“What started over two decades ago as a personal passion for both Gary and me has grown into a worldwide company committed to transforming the lives of millions,” Mary said in the company’s release. “Prior to launching Young Living with Gary, I established and grew my own successful direct selling business. This experience has led to a ‘member-first’ mindset for Young Living and continues to shape our culture and policies.”

In a statement, Young Living said Gary will continue his work in the wellness field as he writes books and shares his knowledge of essential oils. The 66-year-old is also looking to focus his time on family and various philanthropic and civic initiatives.
