USANA Announces Management Team Changes

SALT LAKE CITY -- Dec. 14, 2012 -- USANA Health Sciences, Inc., a global nutritional company, today announced the reorganization of its management team.

Doug Hekking is stepping aside as the Company's Chief Financial Officer to return to a strategic role that will support the Company's finance and operations groups. Mr. Hekking's decision to change roles was prompted by his need to attend to family health matters and his desire to serve in a more targeted role within the Company. The Company thanks Mr. Hekking for serving as CFO and supports his decision to attend to the needs of his family.

Paul Jones, who is currently serving as the Company's Vice President of Human Resources, has been named as interim CFO. Mr. Jones has been with USANA since 2005. Prior to joining the Company, he worked with Associated Food Stores, Inc. as Vice President of Operations - Dan's Foods; Vice President of Farr West Operations; and Vice President of Human Resources. Mr. Jones is a Certified Management Accountant and holds a master's degree in organizational management from the University of Phoenix and a bachelor's degree in finance from Utah State University. Mr. Hekking will be working closely with Mr. Jones during a transition period.

The Company has also accepted the resignation of Chief Operating Officer, Roy Truett. The Company expresses gratitude to Mr. Truett for his contributions to the Company during his years of service and wishes him the best in his future endeavors.

With Mr. Truett's departure, Jim Brown, who was recently promoted to Chief Production Officer for his expertise in operations and production, will direct operations and report directly to the CEO.

Additionally, Rick Stambaugh has been named Chief Information Officer. Mr. Stambaugh has more than 25 years of experience in the direct sales industry. Before joining USANA, he served as President and CEO of TekVation and the Fionda Group, two companies that supply technology and innovative solutions to the direct sales industry. He also served as Director of Corporate Marketing at Herbalife. Mr. Stambaugh has a bachelor's degree in Education from the University of Nebraska Omaha.

Finally, USANA congratulates Lori Truman on her promotion to Vice President of U.S. Field Development. Mrs. Truman has been an extraordinary asset at USANA for nearly 10 years. Most recently, she served as USANA's Executive Director of U.S. Field Development. Her rapport with the Company's Associates and dedication to helping them achieve their goals is unmatched. Mrs. Truman has a bachelor's degree in business management from the University of Utah.

"We deeply appreciate the dedicated service of our management team," stated USANA CEO Dave Wentz. "We are confident that the skills and expertise of these new members of management will help us advance the long term growth of our Company."
