Ken Brailsford Resumes Role as Zija CEO


Zija International is thrilled to announce the company’s Founder, Ken Brailsford, will be resuming his position as Chief Executive Officer. After taking time to grow several of his other businesses, he is eager to work alongside Zija President, Ryan Palmer, to achieve goals set in place by Ryan and the executive team.

“I’m looking forward to being in a more hands-on role for a company that I feel so passionately about,” Ken said. “Because of Ryan’s guidance, Zija has been able to maintain consistent and sustainable growth and I’m excited to see where we can take the company working alongside one another.”

Long before Zija became a household name, Ken had already successfully started and run two multi-million-dollar health and nutrition network marketing companies. After learning of Moringa oleifera in 2005, Ken came out of retirement and founded Zija International—one of the first companies to bring Moringa to market.

Ken’s love for the network marketing industry stems from the desire to help others obtain a life they’ve always dreamed of—what Zija has coined, a Life Unlimited. His companies have supplied hundreds of thousands of individuals with income, products, and relationships that wouldn’t have been possible otherwise.

“There isn’t anyone more qualified than Ken Brailsford to materialize our vision of becoming a true legacy company,” Ryan said. “We have laid out an aggressive growth strategy, we have validated, world-class products, and we have prepared the proper infrastructure to support our Zija Members in sharing their businesses across the globe—Zija’s future is brighter and clearer than ever before.”

In just over a decade, Zija has grown to operate in countries worldwide, and has been recognized on fastest-growing and top-revenue lists by Inc. Magazine.

“After nearly 50 years of experience in the industry, I recognize that Zija is entering an enormous growth phase that I want to be a part of,” Ken said. “We’ve cast a clear vision that will lead Zija to succeed for decades to come.”
