Continuing its growth and ambition – the pursuit of getting more people physically active, MyZone is thrilled to welcome Lyndon Wood to the team as director of business development (Europe). Identifying strong opportunities for fitness and wellbeing across Europe, Lyndon’s focus will be to develop support for distributors and direct operations in areas such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal.
A proven record on and off the track
An marathon and ultra endurance racer, Lyndon has established himself with a proven track record of over 24 years in fitness. When he joins MyZone on June 1st, he moves across from Stages Cycling, where he spent seven years successfully developing distribution networks in Europe and South Africa, and consulted to help set up the business in the UK.
Lyndon has also co-founded a health and mental wellbeing business, focusing on building resilience and mental health in the workplace.
MyZone attribute growth to hiring the highest quality people
David Stalker is the CEO of MyZone EMEA and has affirmed the importance of having quality people on the team in order to grow and nurture relationships, when expanding into new markets.
“I can think of nobody better suited to the next stage of positive growth at MyZone than Lyndon. One of the nicest people in the industry, his personality is matched only by his professionalism and passion in leading more communities to get active around the world.”
His sentiment is seconded by MyZone’s Commercial Director EMEA, Jonathon Monks;
“As an industry and as individuals, we value experience that helps people from all walks of life sustain happier and healthier lives. Lyndon lives and breathes health, fitness, and wellness, and I can’t wait for the positive impact he’ll have on our team to support growth across the EMEA region.”
A positive outlook for MyZone's future
Lyndon’s experience will add to the already strong team. His passion and enthusiasm shine through. When asked about his new appointment, Lyndon said;
“I’m exhilarated to be joining MyZone with its culture, team and business practice that relies on us getting people to move. It’s all about being the catalyst for change for children who search for the confidence to exercise; inspiring all employees to get out from behind their screens at lunch to help their afternoon’s productivity; helping clubs grow communities in and out of their four walls, and individuals whose livelihoods depend on the accurate measurement of their exertion to achieve their successes.
What’s not to smile about? What an opportunity I have to join an awesome team… Great times ahead!”
What’s New in Fitness wishes Lyndon and the team at MyZone every success!
