Like many companies, ours started small. In 1998, Dennis and Carol
Berardi co-founded Trilogy International, now Life's Abundance with a
commitment to offer exceptional health products for people, the planet and
From the outset, they employed two other people, including
Stephen Berardi, Dennis’ brother. Together, they worked out of the office of
Dennis and Carol’s home in Palm City, FL.
In 1999, Dennis and Carol
began searching for qualified product formulators. Within a few weeks the
duo met with fate, at a pet fair where one of the nation’s leading holistic
veterinarians, Dr. Jane Bicks, was in attendance. Soon, a great partnership
was formed. With Dr. Jane onboard, the company quickly added more
professionals – Ann McEver, Linda Logue and Lester Thornhill – each with
their own areas of expertise. It wasn’t long before they realized they had
too many people working in that one-room office, and soon they moved their
new “home office” in Stuart, FL. Soon, there were more hires and product was
flying off the shelves.
The next phase of development came when
George and Cris Jochum became major shareholders. Based upon George’s
extensive business development experience, the Berardi’s asked him to assume
the mantle of President and CEO. Under George’s direction, the company
flourished … in fact, month-over-month, Life's Abundance has never failed to
make a profit since 2003. Soon, the corporate headquarters was relocated to
Palm City, FL, to accommodate an increasing need for space, both for new
employees and growing inventory supplies.
Helping us to maintain our
debt-free status, even throughout the worst economic collapse in several
generations, has been the competent management of Anthony Sinclair, CPA.
Hired in 2005, Anthony was promoted to CFO in September of 2008.
August of 2008, Lester Thornhill was promoted from Senior VP of IT to Life's
Abundance CEO and President. Dennis and Carol Berardi ceased their
overseeing of day-to-day activities of the home office, and now they commit
all of their energies to supporting our extensive network of Field Reps.
George retired in 2012 and Cris succeeded him as Board Chairman.
Throughout the years, the company has continued to grow and expand. As sales
have increased, so have the numbers of employees and warehouses. Growth and
improvements in technology have also led to numerous improvements in our
products, services and business processes over the years.
of 2010, the company officially changed its name to Life's Abundance, Inc.
2012 was a banner year for Life's Abundance. In July we moved into our
new headquarters (pictured at the top of the page) in Jupiter Florida. Our
new facility was custom built from the ground up to support our growing
company. This is the result of all the hard work from our Field Reps and all
of the Life's Abundance employees. We are so proud to call this our home!
Also in 2012 Life's Abundance received a prestigious award as one of the
top 50 Florida Companies to Watch. Growing second-stage businesses statewide
have the opportunity to join an elite group of nationally recognized
companies as part of Florida Companies to Watch, an awards program that
celebrates second-stage companies throughout the state of Florida.
In 2013, the Company achieved another milestone, becoming 100% employee
owned by executing an ESOP transaction. The Jochums and the Berardis remain
with the Company in the same capacities they held before the ownership
