Shin Brings Two Decades of Industry Experience


HONOLULU, December 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Cardax, Inc. (OTCQB: CDXI) announced today that Gilbert Shin has joined Cardax as Vice President, Retail Sales and Marketing, a new position for the Company. Mr. Shin will lead the Company’s recently announced national rollout of ZanthoSyn® to the more than 3,000 corporate stores across the U.S. owned and operated by GNC Holdings, Inc. (“GNC”).

We will also look to Gil to lead our retail sales efforts for future products as well.”


Mr. Shin will work closely with the Company’s senior executive team to execute Cardax’s ZanthoSyn marketing and sales strategy. Together, they will focus on synergistically combining ZanthoSyn national retail marketing with the Company’s physician awareness program.
