As part of ongoing growth, World Gym International, which currently has over 200 locations in 15 countries and territories, has appointed Lewis Stanton to chief executive officer, and Jarrod Saracco to chief operations officer. The brand’s previous CEO, Guy Cammilleri, is now the non-executive chairman of the board. In 2019, World Gym added 39 new gyms to its portfolio, which the brand credits to its modernized outlook.

“Lewis and his team have helped us navigate the current pandemic while continuing franchise development in the United States and internationally,” said Cammilleri. “Lewis’ experience transforming companies to achieve rapid growth and his commitment to fitness make him the perfect CEO for World Gym.”

Stanton has experience as CEO in several companies across multiple industries, including a prominent technology company working in the hospitality industry. He has also worked as an advisor, consultant, and board member on rapid growth and value creation.

“World Gym is a storied brand that helped to shape the modern fitness industry as we know it,” said Stanton. “I am honored to lead this passionate team and to continue to grow this company globally. We are focused on helping our franchised and corporate gyms reopen and be successful.”

Since joining World Gym International, Stanton appointed Jarrod Saracco to COO. Saracco is a 25-year veteran of the health and fitness industry with experience at every level of club operations.

“Working with our corporate-owned gyms and several of the franchisees over the last few weeks, I have seen the talent and limitless potential in the World Gym family,” said Saracco. “I am looking forward to growing this iconic fitness brand by leading our operations team, supporting all of our corporate-owned and franchised World Gym locations and ultimately, helping our more than 1,000,000 members in 15 countries achieve their fitness goals.”
