Scottsdale-based Plexus Worldwide, a leading direct-marketing weight-loss and health-supplement seller that was recently named No. 8 on the 2014 Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies, announced it was named No. 30 on the Direct Selling News (DSN) List of Top 50 Revenue-Generating Companies in Direct Selling within the United States, and No. 56 on its Global 100 list.
The 2015 lists, featured in the June issue of Direct Selling News magazine, represents aggregate revenue of more than $82 billion from companies based in 14 countries. This is the first year where DSN’s Global 100 was also broken out to show the top 50 in North America.
Last year, Plexus Worldwide rankedNo. 76 on the Global list, again indicating Plexus Worldwide continues its rapid growth within the Multi-Level-Marketing (MLM) and direct selling industry as demonstrated by its rise toNo. 56. The list states that Plexus Worldwide showed revenues of $310 Million in 2014, compared to $160 Million in 2013.
“Plexus Worldwide continues to grow at an exceptional rate, and we’re excited to make such a significant jump, up 20 spots, in this year’s DSN Global 100 list top revenue-generating companies,” said Tarl Robinson, CEO of Plexus Worldwide. “Just four years ago, Plexus had revenues of less than one million and in 2014 Plexus surpassed $310 Million. Our growth numbers so far this year in 2015 show even more impressive figures, which we attribute directly to our amazing Ambassadors who continually share their personal success stories leading to our rapid growth.”
“The DSN Global 100 ranking is more than a list of who’s who and what was accomplished in terms of revenue for the prior year,” said John Fleming, Publisher and Editor in Chief of Direct Selling News within its website announcing this year’s winners. “By doing the research and publishing such a list, we spotlight the contributions that the top direct selling companies are making in communities and economies around the world.”
“We continue to see increased numbers each month as more people learn about our incredible products like Plexus Slim, ProBio5, Accelerator+ and many others,” said Alec Clark, Chief Marketing Officer of Plexus Worldwide. “The personal testimonial stories we hear daily from our product users and Ambassadors are awe inspiring, and I couldn’t be more proud to be part of this company that is helping improve lives.”
For the third consecutive year, Ada, Michigan-based Amway claimed the No. 1 rank in the DSN Global 100, with $10.8 billion in revenue. Avon, Herbalife, Mary Kay and Vorwerk rounded out the top five on this year’s list.
