John Bevan has been named chief operating officer of Spafinder Wellness Inc.
Bevan, who will be based at the company’s new headquarters in Miami, was most recently managing director of Spafinder Europe Ltd.
“As head of our operations in Europe, John proved to be a trusted leader who consistently delivered results,” said Pete Ellis, Spafinder Wellness’ chairman and chief executive officer. “His proven successes in Europe stem from his talent for innovation and his keen sense of the wellness industry, which have resulted in increased consumer use of our marketing and gifting programs. He is uniquely qualified to build our global presence and will help us achieve excellence throughout the organization.”
As a result of Bevan’s promotion, Steve Kane, group president of gift sales and business development, will assume additional responsibilities for gift-card sales in Europe. He will continue to lead the company’s global gifting program, which includes retail and digital gift cards and vouchers, and its workplace wellness program, Corporate Wellness 365, along with new business initiatives in the U.S. and Canada.
