About Ascent Naturals
Ascent Naturals was started by two experienced professionals from FDA regulated industries - Marty Ford and Sharon Peek. Their experience spans the pharmaceutical, dietary supplement, and medical device industries. That 55+ years spent in operations, product development, supply chain, engineering, customer service, quality, and sales provided a unique skill set that was fully utilized from Ascent Naturals' conception through its start-up and operation.
Why hemp extraction? There are two parts to the answer. First, their desire to offer natural products that truly help people. Second, their strong belief in hemp and the benefits that this amazing plant offers. Personal experience with hemp-based products has provided pain relief and helped both sleep at night. They wanted to ensure trustworthy, high-quality hemp extracts and products were available in the marketplace.
A Message from our Co-Founder and CEO
“After more time than I care to admit in the medical device, nutraceutical, and OTC industries, I’ve developed a set of philosophies that I believe ensures success. It’s really very simple, but for some reason, these basic principles are forgotten or ignored in companies big and small.”
Be honest in every aspect of your business.
Provide your customer with what they want, when they want it.
Treat every employee as if they are the most important asset of the company, because they are.
Always make time to listen to the stakeholders in you company – customers, employees, vendors. Every point of view is a piece of the puzzle that helps lead to success.
Never allow your company or it’s employees to stop learning. Thinking, innovation, and creativity are absolute musts for survival.
There is always room for improvement.
- Marty Ford
