Julie DarlingLevel 5 Executive Consultant at Rodan + Fields

Julie Darling
Is a Level 5 Consultant at Rodan + Fields, a title held by 2% of the 70,000 consultants in the company. I am helping expand U.S. and Canadian distribution for world renowned Dermatologists Katie Rodan and Kathy Fields, Creators of “Proactiv” with their new skincare venture, “Rodan + Fields Dermatologists”.
Rodan + Fields empowers microenterprises across the United States with an eye on global expansion.
R + F, the direct selling company, was launched in 2008 by founders, Dr. Katie Rodan and Dr. Kathy Fields, the creators and licensors of the wildly successful direct marketing phenomenon, Proactiv Solution. The Rodan + Fields brand was first introduced into the market in 2002 via the prestige department store channel. Although recognized as a top clinical brand in leading stores, the company ultimately concluded that the department store environment was a constraint to the growth potential of the brand and, in 2007, implemented a business transformation strategy that included acquisition of the business from Estee Lauder, withdrawal from department store distribution, and a re-launch of the business under a new direct selling platform. Since the re-launch of Rodan & Fields, LLC as a network marketing company in March, 2008, the company has realized consistent triple digit annual growth and was recognized by the Direct Selling Association as the Rising Star in 2010. Today, our products reach tens of thousands of consumers through a network of independent business owners who are seeking to take their share of the lucrative $2.5 Billion anti-aging skincare market as they leverage the Rodan + Fields brand, compensation plan and market leading technology-based support infrastructure.
Our mission is to redefine independent business ownership with brand leadership, superior products and an enabling business model / system. We are driven by our core values: Integrity, Teamwork, Collaboration, Accountability and Celebrating Success. Therefore, we strive to attract the very best talent in our industry. That’s where you come in.
A bit about my background …. I am the founder of Darling Creative, a boutique-marketing agency focusing on the lifestyle and luxury market. Starting out as a model, I was placed in fashion shows, catalogs, advertisements and as an ambassador for various consumer products. While learning how to market myself and consequently funding my education, I earned a degree in marketing and management from the University of Illinois. My first position was a promotions manager organizing special events at restaurants and nightclubs for Chicago based Ala Carte Entertainment. I was tasked with executing event marketing initiatives, promotional strategies, advertising and sales. Shortly thereafter I was offered a position as marketing manager at Premier Yachts in Chicago, a luxury dining cruise line. I then founded the Chicago office of Gen Art, an arts and entertainment organization that promoted emerging talent, giving them a platform and a voice.
I’m an animal lover, a bit of a beauty addict, true Chicagoan, and often will consult on various fundraising initiatives.
