Gillian Stapleton

Executive Director, Direct Selling Australia

Gillian Stapleton was appointed Executive Director of Direct Selling Australia in July 2016. Gill is the first female appointed to this position in the Association’s history of almost 50 years.

Gill, started her career as a teacher in the UK but joined a home based direct selling business, so that she could be a full- time mum to her two children. Rising to the top of that business and achieving every award and trip possible, Gill was offered a corporate role in Australia with that same organisation. Since then, she has been the CEO of both a network marketing organisation, a party-plan business and a national Charity. Gill has also previously served as a member of the Direct Selling Australia Board.

Gill is passionate about empowering others, particularly women, to be the best that they can be – a big believer in setting and achieving goals! Gill has an infectious energy – she runs marathons for fun!
