Nick Wiegand, President
Nick Wiegand has almost two decades of experience working in e-commerce, specifically in the medical and dietary supplement markets. He understands the importance and value that supplements can have on daily living. As a provider of those products, it is his duty to provide quality products to people. Nick has launched several brands from the ground up, successfully utilizing third-party marketplaces to help rapidly grow his business. Over the years, he learned the pros and many cons of dealing with large unregulated supplement marketplaces.
