Ancient Nutrition welcomes new CEO, Greg Shearson

Ancient Nutrition (Nashville, TN) announced that Greg Shearson is its new CEO, effective immediately. Jordan Rubin and Josh Axe, PhD, will continue in their leadership roles, holding the titles of founder and chairman, and founder and chief visionary officer, respectively. Rubin will continue to head innovation for Ancient Nutrition, says the company.

“I’m confident in Greg’s ability to bring a wealth of experience and passion to our team, as well as in his ability to shape all of us to be better versions of ourselves and to push Ancient Nutrition past its boundaries,” said Rubin in a press release. “Personally, I’m looking forward to focusing more on my true passions of product innovation and new product development. I will also continue to be very involved with customer relationships and go-to-market strategy.”

Shearson began his relationship with Ancient Nutrition as part of the company’s Ancient Pioneer investor network created in partnership with VMG Partners. He most recently served as CEO of Merrick Natural Pet Care for seven years, growing the business nearly tenfold, and even after selling to Nestle in 2015, continued to drive growth through innovative products.

“Through the lens of an investor, I was impressed with Jordan and Josh’s passion and mission,” Shearson said in a press release. “As I learned more about the business and team, I was excited to marry my personal interests in nutrition, health, and wellness with the opportunity to lead transformational growth in another dynamic business.”

“Bringing Greg on board is the perfect example of Ancient Nutrition staying true to its values of hiring people who are passionate about helping us achieve our vision,” said Axe in a press release. “At Ancient Nutrition, we want to see millions of lives changed, and Greg wants to be standing right by our side when we accomplish that goal.”
