Weight Loss & Wellness Company Relocates to Accommodate Growth, Inspire Collaboration and Drive Innovation
IRVINE, Calif. — Lindora, one of the largest medically supervised weight loss and wellness companies in the country, announced today that it has opened a new, modern corporate office campus meant to accommodate recent and future growth, inspire collaboration and drive innovation.
The state-of-the-art building is located in Irvine, CA – centrally located within Orange County, close to John Wayne Airport and alongside some of the country’s fastest growing companies.
Will Righeimer, Lindora’s CEO, said that the move to the new campus is part of the team’s overall strategic plan and an important step in realizing the company’s vision to create the best weight loss and wellness company in the world. “This new campus will give us the room we need to grow and the creative space we need to inspire collaboration and foster new ideas.”
Carol Farrell, Lindora’s Chief People Officer, went on to say that the new space will be key in attracting top-quality talent to Lindora. “There are so many reasons why employees love working at Lindora. This new, cutting-edge, energetic space is now another one and it will enable our employees to do their absolute best work.”
The facility was built with modern features and amenities that job seekers now expect including an open floor plan with lots of natural light, high exposed ceilings, concrete floors, several large, creatively-themed break rooms, a shaded and landscaped outdoor retreat space with eating tables and umbrellas, a walking path and reserved underground parking. The building is also an environmentally sustainable location and is certified LEED Silver by the U.S. Green Building Council.
The new corporate headquarters will facilitate all finance, human resource, operations, marketing, membership support, and customer service personnel. The campus also includes a dedicated training area for Lindora’s nearly 300 employees.
The move comes at a point when the company is experiencing unprecedented growth and innovation.
Lindora was purchased by Solis Capital Partners and Innovate Partners just a few years ago. A new leadership team was brought on shortly thereafter and has been rapidly evolving the business to meet the needs of their patients and an American population whose obesity problem is reaching epidemic proportions.
Last year, Lindora turned the conventional weight loss segment on its ear by launching a new monthly subscription membership program that made Lindora weight loss and wellness plans more affordable and offered patients far more benefits at a low monthly cost. The company made the move to membership based on their deep understanding of the patient journey. Most companies tend to manage the episodic nature of weight loss; where patients diet for short periods of time only to eventually gain the weight back over the long term. Lindora wanted to break that cycle and set out to teach lifestyle change for long term results. The introduction of the membership model has placed even more emphasis on Lindora’s commitment to long term patient success and has yielded higher patient engagement rates and record breaking increases in new patient growth.
Since Righeimer and the new team took over, the company has also introduced more than 50 new on-trend products under their LindoraNutrition TM label, launched an exclusive line of fully prepared and ready-to-go, ketogenic meals called LindoraFreshTM, and made a significant investment in body contouring services which are available to patients in many of the 34 southern California clinics.
Righeimer closed by saying, “This new space is a perfect reflection of who we are becoming as a brand – creative, innovative and modern.”
