Dan Brenner has been appointed as Chief Executive Officer and John Starr has been named Vice President of Finance and Operations.
“I started InstaNatural two years ago, and up until last year I was the only employee,” said AJ Patel, founder and Chairman of InstaNatural. “As the business has continued to evolve and expand along with our customer base, it only felt right to bring in more support to take InstaNatural to the next level. Dan has the vision and background to take us there, and I’m thrilled to have him as our new CEO.”

We are looking forward to seeing what’s to come and exploring new opportunities for the brand over this next year.”
