    GU Energy Expands Management Team

    Nutrition Powerhouse Announces Internal Promotions

    GU Energy Labs, creators of the original energy gel, is pleased to announce the promotion of Michael Littleton to Vice President of Finance, Magdalena Lewy-Boulet to Vice President of Innovation and Lauren O’Connor to Director of Marketing.

    Paving the way in research and development, Magdalena Lewy-Boulet, GU Energy’s resident US Olympian (Women’s Marathon, 2008 Beijing Games), will assume the role of Vice President of Innovation. Boasting a Masters in Exercise Physiology, Magdalena has already developed new gels for Rock-n-Roll Marathons, as well as a new Chocolate Peanut Butter flavor. “Magda” also happens to own the 5th fastest women’s marathon time in US history.

    A key player in leading GU through recapitalization in August of 2013, Michael Littleton, who formerly served as Controller for GU Energy, will now take the reins as Vice President of Finance. Littleton is a CPA by trade and has been integral in helping the company navigate myriad new tax regulations as well as the many new topics engendered by GU’s recently-completed corporate headquarters.

    Additionally, former Senior Marketing Manager Lauren O’Connor has been promoted to Director of Marketing at GU. A former high level rugby player, O’Connor has already played a key role in development of new marketing ideas, strategies and tactics for GU, and will continue to shape brand marketing strategy in her new role.

    “We are incredibly excited about extending the responsibilities of Michael, Magdalena and Lauren on our management team,” said Tal Johnson, President and COO of GU Energy. “These individuals have been vital in the elevation, innovation and growth of our brand – we greatly look forward to their continued contributions in their new roles.”
