Patricia Leighton CEO

Patricia completed her undergraduate studies at Boston University in 2000, with a major in Economics and a minor in Business Administration. She then moved to NYC and held various positions within the Fashion Industry. In 2006, she left her position as National Sales Manager of Ben Sherman and moved to Switzerland to combine her passions (sports & nutrition) with her career while enjoying the Alps on foot, bike or board.

She graduated from Business School Lausanne (MBA) in 2008. Her management thesis focused on the development and expansion of Maine Natural Health® (the parent company of SFH). While completing her MBA, and after, she consulted for various sporting goods companies gaining international experience. In 2009, she returned to the US and moved to Los Angeles. This transition led to her current position at SFH where she now functions as CEO of the company.

From a young age, Patricia has loved sports and the outdoors. These days, she can be found challenging herself on a variety of terrains with mountain hikes, trail runs, snowboarding or a fierce tennis match. She is grateful for the opportunity to blend her love of sports and fitness with a business focused on encouraging proper nutrition.
