Vice President of Sales
I love Direct Sales! My experience started in the field where I became a car driving director in cosmetics to achieving high leadership levels in jewelry where we built a multi-million dollar organization. I shifted to the corporate side helping develop start-up network marketing companies and shaping the corporate culture through decisions about marketing strategy, comp plans, incentives, field training, back office software, communication platforms, and leadership development. I have passion for network marketing and enjoy working globally. My strength is developing leaders and opening new markets both domestic and international. This business can provide freedom, financial security, tax benefits, personal development, and life-long friends. My favorite quote that sums up the attributes of our business is from Zig Ziglar, “You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
VP of Information Technology
I’m excited to bring my knowledge and experience in information technology, systems integrations and translating business processes as the Vice-President of Technology for retro co. My experience in the technology field for various industries allows me to apply many best practices in our development of systems to support the field. My primary goal is to ensure that our customers and CIOs enjoy a stable IT platform for all things retro so they can enjoy the benefits that come from a great product and business. I enjoy playing basketball and video games in my free time. I just took up cycling as well and am looking forward to the new experiences.
VP of CIO Central and Guideline Support
My number one goal and desire is, and always will be, to help others learn and discover endless possibilities within themselves. This desire has played out over the years in my different roles as a proud military spouse, mom to three beautiful children, and now "CiCi" to a beautiful grandson. During the past 16 years this goal has also been an imporant focus while working with and mentoring some of the best teams, at some of the fastest growing companies in the direct selling industry. My leadership philosophy is all about empowering others to look beyond what they see and to listen and discover what they can do to help others be successful. In my current role with retro co., I have the distinct opportunity to lead and teach a new team how to equip others to unlock their futures and reach their goals. For me, our ultimate success will be seeing our CIOs prosper today, tomorrow and well into the future. As a militay brat and spouse, my family has lived in many parts of this amazing country, and while I have a home and family in Ohio, and family in Pennsylvania, I also call sunny Florida and my retro co. family my new home-away-from-home.

Lindy Hatfield Zinser
Director of Operations
My great passion in life is working with others in a team-oriented environment. I thrive in a fun, competitive, and organized atmosphere and enjoy connecting with people. I have years of experience leading Operations in cosmetics, skincare, haircare and medical device manufacturing. I currently work with upper management and suppliers striving to deliver high quality products to our customers. I am no stranger to teamwork, commitment and results playing four years of Division I college basketball and coaching six years of college basketball in Texas, going undefeated and winning an NCAA National Championship. My competitive nature and team-building spirit has-been and will always be a part of my everyday life. As an avid sports fan, my husband and I look forward to college football season and college basketball March Madness. I am a wife, daughter, sister, proud aunt and soon-to-be Mom. Family is the most important to me, and I feel blessed to be able to work with a few of them every day.
Director of People Operations
Working as an advocate for others has just come natural. Born in northern Ohio, I earned a Bachelor's of Science degree, majoring in Social Work, from Bowling Green State University, which steered me into the workforce of healthcare. Family has always been a priority and I was blessed to work in my family's hometown healthcare business. This experience allowed me to develop over 20 years' in in top leadership roles within healthcare and administration. Holding a license in Social Work and Nursing Home Administration in Ohio, prior to relocating to Florida, was instramental in the startup of several successful family businesses. Now, I continue to share my leadership skills in People Operations and Talent at retro co., continuing my advocacy role and surrounding myself with people full of laughter and excitement. Relocating from Ohio was not only for the sun, but a gift to bring me closer to my children and enjoy the addition of grandchildren. I have the good fortune of serving retro co. and once again I am blessed to be working closely with my family. Spending time with my children and watching my grandchildren grow has made Fort Myers, Florida, my home. There is no bad day when you can spend it with family, sun and at the beach!
