Founding Executives

David Stirling

Founding Executive, Chairman & CEO

Imagine the world 12 years ago when the benefits of essential oils were largely unknown to most and access to purity was limited. In that time, the hearts and minds of seven qualified individuals came together under the visionary leadership of David Stirling to form a unique organization called doTERRA. Now, take a minute to breathe in the amazing progress in global expansion and opportunities that have exploded as doTERRA is recognized as the global leader in what has become an eight-billion-dollar industry of essential oils. As David continues to lead doTERRA as CEO, his natural abilities to guide unprecedented global growth, including new market openings, and the truly remarkable Co-Impact Sourcing, benefits the full doTERRA family. Through all of David’s achievements he continues to place the growth and progress of people as the first priority of his leadership, mentoring others through his kindness and service-focused mindset. He will tell you that his greatest accomplishments are the many wonderful friends, exciting adventures, and incredible service opportunities that have been created for the entire doTERRA family, through doTERRA’s growth and success.

David encourages everyone in the doTERRA family to work together, finding strength in our differences and in the common bonds of our communities. As we become more kind, patient, and supportive, we become emboldened to lift each other, providing permission to others to grow in their own capacity, power, and happiness.

Corey Lindley

He has lived and worked in Hong Kong, Japan, China, Australia and, of course, the United States, solving complex business issues. Corey has worked in senior C-level positions for two billion dollar-plus consumer product companies that market products through direct selling–one being doTERRA.

A hallmark of Corey’s professional career has been his focus on developing competent and loyal teams. While at doTERRA, he has developed a love and passion for helping others including Wellness Advocate Leaders, Consumers, Employees and those engaged with doTERRA through the company’s vast global grower network.

He loves all sports, especially golf, but Corey is quick to point out that his favorite pastime is being with his amazing wife, Janis, along with his eight children and their families including 20 grandchildren doing whatever it is that they want to do.

Emily Wright

Founding Executive, Global Leadership Development

Emily was immersed into the world of direct sales and essential oils in the late 90s when there was very little awareness about them in the United States. As a young mother, she loved the empowerment essential oils offered her to take charge of her family’s health and became determined for the world to know what she had discovered. Her passion for intuitive wellness and helping people drove her to understand all aspects of a very complex business, and she broke the glass ceiling becoming the first female in the company’s history to hold an executive position and Board seat. Sales that had been flat lined for years tripled in just three years as she locked arms with a talented executive team, staff and field leaders to implement new vision and strategies.

She stepped down from her executive position in 2007 because her values no longer aligned with where the essential oils industry was going. Knowing there had to be a better way, she followed her heart to pursue what’s pure leading to the birth of doTERRA in 2008. Determined to provide every household with the world’s most pure, most potent essential oils on the planet, she is obsessed with lifting communities around the globe through doTERRA’s Co-Impact Sourcing initiatives.

Emily’s extensive experience in all aspects of the global essential oils market combined with her obsession with unlocking human potential make for the perfect combination to lead doTERRA into unchartered territory. She has an innate ability to see what is possible and collaboratively leads a powerful corporate team as well as Wellness Advocates and customers around the globe to unite in a common cause. She loves nothing more than to develop people and help them rise to their highest potential.

Often referred to as the heart of doTERRA, Emily is a caring and seasoned executive and the recipient of several awards, including 30 Women to Watch (2018, Utah Business) and Pathfinder (2018, Women & Business, Salt Lake Chamber). However, Emily’s greatest accomplishment is being the mother of four amazing children, Mimi to two adorable grandchildren and the wife of a humble cowboy.
