Chief Sales Officer
Ben Riley joined Young Living in June 2016 when he stepped in as senior director of Global Sales. Since that time, he has held the roles of regional president of North America and, most recently, executive vice president of Global Sales.
With an MBA from Duke University and more than 15 years of experience in network marketing and fast-moving consumer goods, Ben has served as VP of leadership at Visi, VP of sales at Avon in Australia and New Zealand, managing director for 4Life ANZ, and general manager for Melaleuca ANZ.
Ben also worked as an expatriate in Taiwan and South Korea and speaks fluent Korean and passable Mandarin. In total, he has spent more than 10 years building businesses internationally and loves understanding and learning from other cultures and people.
Ben’s true beginnings with Young Living started in 1998, when he worked at a Young Living warehouse while attending college. He describes the feeling of being part of the Young Living family as similar to the feeling of coming home. Now, he is particularly passionate about working for the best personal empowerment vehicle he has ever been a part of.
Ben is married with three children, two girls and one boy, and he enjoys spending time with them, especially while hiking and camping. His personal interests include golf, road and mountain cycling, reading, and traveling. Ben’s favorite Young Living products rotate regularly, but his current go-to is Sacred Sandalwood
