A Loss in the MonaVie Family

Dear MonaVie Family,

It is with profound sadness that I communicate to you the passing of Darrell Utterbach, Royal Black Diamond distributor, MonaVie Distributor Advisory Board member, loving family man, and dear friend and colleague. Darrell passed away unexpectedly while conducting business in Seoul, Korea.

For more than two decades, Darrell has been a proponent of and respected voice for the entire Direct Selling Industry. Had it not been for Darrell visiting my home in 2004 and introducing me, Randy Larsen, and Henry Marsh to the acai berry, there likely wouldn't be a MonaVie today. We owe him a great debt of gratitude.

On behalf of the entire MonaVie family, Karree and I offer our deepest condolences at this time of great loss to Tracy, Darrell's beloved wife. His unexpected and sudden passing should be a reminder to each of us that life is precious, and that we should strive to live our lives with deeper meaning, each and every day. We are mindful of the Utterbachs’ distributor organization at this time as well, and pledge to them our continued support. On a housekeeping note, I would ask that we all please respect the privacy of the Utterbach family at this critical time.

I’d like to share with you a quote from Darrell’s own MonaVie Success Story, which I think speaks volumes about his mature perspective on life:

“MonaVie has changed my life and provided me with the freedom I've always wanted. The road to success with MonaVie has been incredible, and I celebrate the journey—not just the destination—because the journey is where the greatest personal development occurs.

Is it any wonder this good man achieved such personal and professional success?

Darrell, it is my humble belief that you may be looking upon us at this very moment and that you may even be reading this letter. I say to you, my good friend, that you have indeed completed your journey upon this earth, and I trust you have arrived Home to your supernal destination. We are better people for having known you, and miss you dearly. May the Good Lord attend to you with open arms.

God Bless,

Dallin A. Larsen
Founder, Chairman, CEO, and Friend of Darrell and Tracy Utterbach

A private memorial service will be held for immediate family. To send your condolences, please email condolences@monavie.com. Your messages will be passed along to the family. Thank you for respecting the privacy of the Utterbach family at this critical time.

MonaVie Korea Grand Opening Recap

View the photo gallery.

More than 4,500 distributors and guests attended the MonaVie Korea Grand Opening celebration at the Korea International Exhibition Center (KINTEX) on Saturday, August 28, 2010.

With a passion for distributors and greatness that is unmatched in the industry, brothers Dallin A. Larsen (Founder, Chairman, and CEO) and Randy Larsen (Founder and Vice Chairman of MonaVie; President of Asia Pacific) inspired and motivated the crowd with the story of MonaVie and with their tremendous commitment to the Korea market.

MonaVie Korea General Manager Bong Yong Na also shared his vision of the huge impact MonaVie Korea will have on the direct selling industry and on MonaVie’s goal of becoming a US$20 billion wellness community in 20 years. MonaVie leaders also introduced the first Black Diamond Executive in Korea, Mr. Tae Yoan Kim, who drove onto the stage in his brand new, black Mercedes Benz from MonaVie.

MonaVie Korea launched back on March 25, 2010, and is already making a great impact throughout the country. As a result of the grand opening celebrations, more than 15 publications in Korea published stories about MonaVie, the acai berry, and the science behind our products. But as Dallin, Randy, and Bong Yong reiterated throughout the event, the best is yet to come for MonaVie in Korea.
