Asheville, NC – ChiLiving, the parent company of ChiRunning® and ChiWalking®, is pleased to announce Jill Gleeson as the new Chief Operating Officer.

“I am so proud to represent a company that has made a personal difference in my life,” claims Gleeson. “ChiRunning made running enjoyable for me again,” she says, referring to a ChiRunning clinic she attended by company founder, Danny Dreyer in March 2010. “I’ve always enjoyed the benefits of running, but I didn’t have the skills to avoid injuries, until my introduction to ChiRunning.”

Gleeson, a Harvard MBA, has spent her career working as a marketing and business development executive domestically and internationally in both established organizations and start-up companies. She comes to North Carolina from Florida, where she was the Vice President of the National Market Segment of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida. During her tenure at BCBSFL, Gleeson exceeded annual growth and retention targets by identifying market capability gaps in reporting, care management and infrastructure.

“I’m thrilled to be in a position to take the business to the next level by creating connections with a larger base and expanding the Chi programs to benefit the greater fitness and wellness communities,” says Gleeson. Gleeson can be reached at jill@chiliving.com.
