March 07, 2013 // Franchising.com // DAVIE, Fla. - Dr. G’s Franchising Companies, LLC, spearheading the global franchise growth and operations for Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness, today announced that it has appointed Charlotte Russell as Chief Executive Officer. David Lopez, former CEO, will focus his efforts on the Board level and has been named Vice-Chairman of the Board of Directors.

The appointment of Russell, who has served as Chief Operations Officer since the Company’s inception in 2010, signals a strategic decision to reorganize its business to build upon the momentum it has created over the past three years. The Company has experienced rapid growth with 84 centers open and/or under development in 12 countries. Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness centers can currently be found in Florida, New Jersey, New York, Delaware, Pennsylvania, throughout Central and South America and Australia.

Russell stated, "I am delighted and honored to guide Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness, a company that transforms clients’ lives, through the next phase of its evolution. I look forward to working with our franchisees and staff to further our mission of building a world-wide network of doctor-driven franchises that provides an easy, proven, and individualized medical weight loss and wellness system.”

Russell is a franchise industry veteran. She led Quiznos Canada from 2001-2005 and has successfully built and expanded several other franchises in the United States, including DentalFixRx, LLC and Froots Franchising Companies, Inc.

As a business centered on health, Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness is among the second fastest growing segment in franchising, after restaurants, which account for one-third of all franchises in the country. In the U.S. alone, current estimates indicate that $100 billion is spent annually on weight loss products and services, including medical procedures and pharmaceuticals, with weight loss centers garnering between six and 12 percent of the total annual expenditure.

Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness offers safe and sensible medically supervised weight loss programs, as well as nutritional products, that assist individuals to easily and rapidly achieve their healthy weight and improve their lifestyles. Founded by Dr. Charles Goldsmith in 1994, Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness has 19 years of experience helping over 90,000 patients lose more than one million pounds. Unlike most weight loss programs where one size fits all, the Dr. G’s program is an individualized physician-supervised medical weight loss plan that uses its proprietary software and a full medical evaluation including blood work, EKG, metabolic rate, body composition, and behavioral history to create customized plans for safe and effective weight loss.
