Dan Catto and Joe Garcia: Pioneering New Markets

By Dr. Josephine Gross

Dan Catto and Joe Garcia are business partners who lead a network marketing mega-team of more than 850,000 distributors spanning all five continents.

Based in Toronto, both Dan and Joe are veterans of the profession; Dan got started in 1988 and Joe joined him in 1993. What’s unusual about their story is that only 5 percent of their network is in North America, while the other 95 percent is mostly in what they call the “emerging markets.”
