Vice President & General Manager, Specialty Retail - International

Leo Hamacher

I grew up in Europe and graduated from San Diego State University with a degree in International Business and International Economics. My first role at Watkins Wellness was International Service Specialist, with a focus on coordinating international tech support, service training, warranty procedures and customer service.

An opportunity arose at Watkins Europe in Belgium, and I transferred there as International Customer Service Manager in 2002. Shortly after, I became European Sales Manager, responsible for business development, managing regional sales managers and the European marketing team.

After transferring back to Vista, Calif. as Director of Sales & Marketing–Europe, in 2012 I took on the challenge of VP of International Sales & Marketing. Today, as VP & GM, International Specialty Retail, I work with a talented group of team members to drive our international sales and marketing goals, support our dealer partners in more than 70 countries, and oversee operations at our distribution centers in Belgium and the UK.

The management team at Watkins Wellness truly cares about every team member, as evidenced by the average employee tenure of 11+ years. That is testimony to a great company where people like to work.
