The home healing innovators have officially named former VP of three years, Daniel Baumwald as president, Baumwald has been with the company since its inception in 2009 after an unconventional move, when he left the esteemed position of National Account Manager with Glaceau Vitaminwater/Coca-Cola to join then start-up THERA°PEARL to “change the name in the pain game” with an innovative product that he believed had great potential.

As the company has grown, so to has Baumwalkd’s role. As president, he will now have the flexibility to shift his focus from B2B sales to overseeing management of the THERA°PEARL team, and the company’s overall direction as it continues to expand. Baumwald’s belief that one should “Never turn down an opportunity just because the risk outweighs the reward” has clearly paid off as he moves into his new position to assume full leadership of THERA°PEARL, LLC.

With Baumwald’s promotion to president, THERA°PEARL is welcoming a new vice president of sales, Thomas Keeney, to join their savvy team of brand builders. Keeney will play an intricate role by leading THERA°PEARL sales team and its retail market expansion. Keeney previously served four years as vice president of sales and field marketing with HINT, Inc., a company that produces and distributes naturally flavored, sugar free water.
