Proven Leader of Viactiv Brand to Oversee Ramp Up and Commercial Activities at Guardion

SAN DIEGO, June 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Guardion Health Sciences, Inc. (Nasdaq: GHSI) (“Guardion” or the “Company”), a clinical nutrition and diagnostics company that develops clinically supported nutrition, supplements, medical foods and medical devices, today announced the appointment of Craig J. Sheehan as its Chief Commercial Officer.

Mr. Sheehan joins Guardion following the Company’s recent acquisition of Activ Nutritional. Mr. Sheehan was the senior executive responsible for the Viactiv brand as a member of the executive leadership team of Adare Pharmaceuticals for the last four years. Prior to that position, Mr. Sheehan served in key marketing leadership positions at Church & Dwight, where he drove growth of iconic, science-backed brands such as Arm & Hammer®, First Response®, OxiClean®, and Vitafusion®.

Bret Scholtes, Guardion’s CEO commented, “Craig has been responsible for the successful marketing and distribution of the Viactiv brand at Adare, and we look forward to benefitting from his experience and insight regarding not only that brand, but in new and exciting ways to expand our capabilities in commercialization and marketing within the larger supplement market through various marketing channels. These capabilities are critical to our long-term success as a clinical nutrition company, and we are fortunate to have Craig leading our commercialization activities.”

Mr. Sheehan currently sits on the board of The Council for Responsible Nutrition and holds two patents for his work as a formulation chemist. He holds a Master of Business Administration and a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry from Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey.

“I am very proud of the success achieved by the Viactiv brand and am looking forward to the challenge of extending that success to a larger platform with a significant unrealized upside. We have a unique opportunity to build Guardion’s commercial presence in the market and establish a leadership platform on which future opportunities will be built. I thank the team at Guardion for the opportunity to build toward success together,” added Mr. Sheehan.
