The Kyäni Story
Today Kyäni represents a health and wellness lifestyle for people all around the world. Kyäni began with remarkable founding families who, from humble beginnings, achieved enormous success through hard work and innovation. The Hansens took a small petroleum company and turned it into one of the largest independent distributorships in the United States. Similarly, the Taylor family transformed three acres and a horse into one of the largest potato farming and cattle operations in Idaho. Today they use cutting-edge technology to enhance and expand their businesses. The Founding Families were introduced to the remarkable power of two relatively unknown Superfoods – Wild Alaskan Blueberries and Wild Alaskan Sockeye Salmon. The Hansens and Taylors were impressed by the potency and extraordinary health benefits that these nutrients were able to provide. Harnessing the entrepreneurial power of network marketing, the Founders formed Kyäni to provide nutritional wellness and financial opportunity to millions around the world. Today, Kyäni continues to offer the most compelling nutritional supplements in the industry and the opportunity for Customers and Distributors to experience more health, more wealth, and more life.
The companies founders come from different backgrounds and industries, but they find common ground in their work ethic and vision. The following biographies will help you get to know them, discover how they got their start, and the principles that have helped make Kyäni what it is today.
Kirk Hansen, Chairman
Kirk Hansen is a highly successful, multi-generational businessman with a lifetime commitment to Kyäni. From a very early age, Kirk Hansen took on special tasks in the family’s small petroleum business. As a young teenager, Kirk was entrusted to perform long-distance deliveries in commercial trucks. He personally built the company’s bulk oil business long before larger competitors could catch on. He led the expansion of the family business’s holdings into real estate, restaurants, and hotels. Kirk’s ability to visualize and execute a winning strategy was evident in purchasing a deteriorating property and turning it into one of the nation’s largest rail-to-truck fuel facilities. When Kirk sees an opportunity, he learns new skills to make it happen. Kirk is a tenacious, hard working organizer with the ability to build lasting business relationships. Kirk is a visionary leader that keeps Kyäni focused, relevant, and prosperous.
