International growth and expanded product line drive infrastructure expansion
CHICAGO, IL—Jesse R. Lopez, founder and CEO of SourceOne™ Global Partners, has announced the appointment of Leslie Van der Meulen as Director of Sales.
Van der Meulen began his sales and marketing career almost 10 years ago at Nutrition Company (INC) BV in The Netherlands, the worldwide supplier of branded ingredients such as Dr. Masquelier’s French Maritime Pine Bark Extract, grape seed extract, and more. As Managing Director at INC responsible for growing and managing worldwide sales, Van der Meulen successfully led the global expansion of branded science-based ingredients and the finished product lines of Masquelier’s Original OPCs. Throughout his career, Van der Meulen has garnered recognition for his outstanding performance, integrity, and commitment to customer satisfaction.
“As a top producer at INC, Leslie brings to SourceOne a global perspective and laudable brand-building record,” says Lopez. “He has developed solid and enduring relationships worldwide in nutritional supplements, functional foods and personal care markets. The fact that he speaks four languages (English, Dutch, German and French) is an added bonus as SourceOne continues to expand our business throughout Europe, Asia, and South America.”
Lopez adds, “Leslie is a natural fit for SourceOne as we launch OPC-Source™ French Maritime Pine Bark Extract, OmegaSmart™ concentrated omega-3 EFAs, and XanMax™ all-natural crystalline lutein. Furthermore, he will greatly complement and build on flagship products such as Sytrinol™, ActivAli™ Tongkat Ali, GammaSource®, SterolSource® 300 plant sterols, T3-PalmSource™, Cardio-E™, CoQ-Source™, and our family of Cholesstrinol™ products. I am completely confident in his abilities to develop long-lasting and mutually beneficial relationships with our client partners throughout the world.”
Van der Meulen comments, “I am delighted to join the SourceOne team as we share a commitment to deliver peerless value in the marketplace through providing superior-quality branded ingredients that are fully supported by compelling scientific studies. The investment in building brand awareness and educating consumers is the foundation upon which we will continue to build long-term relationships with our brand marketing and manufacturing customers.”
