BENTONVILLE, Ark., June 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Glucose Health, Inc. (OTC: GLUC) is pleased to announce that Mr. John Fieldly has accepted an invitation to join the company's Board of Directors.
Mr. Fieldly is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Celsius Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ: CELH). Under his leadership, the CELSIUS® brand of functional beverages has enjoyed outstanding growth, along with highly coveted beverage industry recognition.
On May 12, Celsius Holdings, Inc. delivered $28.2 million in revenue for Q1 2020; the best first quarter revenue performance in Company history, up 95% vs. Q1 2019. CELSIUS® branded products have been the recipients of 22 industry awards, both in the U.S. and globally, including the 2017 Beverage Industry Innovation of the Year Award.
As the newest member of the Glucose Health, Inc. Board of Directors, Mr. Fieldly commented that, "when I was appointed CEO of Celsius Holdings, Inc. three years ago, I felt that few brands had the growth potential of CELSIUS® and that we were charting a new course for the health and fitness beverage category. GLUCODOWN® has many of the same growth characteristics as CELSIUS® and I am excited to once again, be a part of another small dynamic company with big plans and ambitions."
Mr. Fieldly added, "GLUCODOWN® is the first iced tea mix infused with healthy soluble fiber, along with essential vitamins and minerals, and offers millions of Americans, particularly those whom are pre-diabetic or diabetic, with a delicious and nutritious beverage choice. Today's consumer is transitioning to beverages that help promote a healthier lifestyle. The stage is set for GLUCODOWN® to become a category disrupter, much like CELSIUS® when it was first introduced."
Mr. Fieldly joins Gerry David, who preceded Mr. Fieldly as CEO of Celsius Holdings, Inc. and Hal Kravitz, the former President of the Glaceau business unit at The Coca Cola Company and a current Director of Celsius Holdings, Inc. and Company CEO Murray Fleming, in comprising the Board of Directors of Glucose Health, Inc.
