Derek Maxfield, Founder & CEO of Younique
As Younique’s Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Derek Maxfield oversees all of the company’s strategic initiatives and growth objectives. His primary focus is on Younique’s mission, and he always seeks to provide Younique Presenters with the tools and support they need to succeed.
Derek and his sister, Co-founder and Chief Visionary Officer Melanie Huscroft, founded Younique in September 2012. The pair envisioned a mission-first company designed to support The Younique Foundation, which brings healing and hope to survivors of childhood sexual abuse. After 12 years of developing software for top players in the direct sales industry, Derek sought to capitalize on the untapped potential he saw to improve the direct selling business model.
Derek’s passion is providing a simplified digital experience in a traditional sales environment. With Younique, this is achieved by social selling and virtual parties instead of traditional home parties. He loves creating simple but powerful mobile technology, empowering Younique Presenters to run an entire business anytime, anywhere, from the convenience of a mobile device. Derek emphasizes the corporate motto is to “Keep it simple, keep it special.” This means choosing technology because it’s powerful in achieving the Younique Presenters’ goals, not just because it’s popular.
