24 Hour Fitness has announced Tony Ueber as Chief Executive Officer, with Chris Roussos stepping down and remaining a special advisor to the Company for the next two months to ensure a smooth transition.
“I am excited to join the 24 Hour Fitness team and believe in the vision and mission of the business and the potential for the company to become the definitive leader in the industry,” said Tony Ueber. “I am confident we can build upon the solid foundation that Chris has built to take the Company to new heights.”
Ueber recently led the transformation and expansion of Results Physiotherapy, where he more than doubled the number of locations. Previously at Banfield Pet Hospital, Ueber doubled revenue and delivered more than a tenfold increase in earnings.
“With 25 years of demonstrated success across a diverse background of experiences, Tony has the unique skill set and experience required to execute the strategic plans we have laid out to transform into the clear industry leader,” said Roland Smith, Chairman of the Board of Directors. “We thank Chris for his role in building the solid foundation on which 24 Hour Fitness sits today.”
“It has been a privilege and honor to be part of the 24 Hour Fitness team and I am proud of what we have accomplished,” added Chris Roussos. “With a solid foundation in place, the time is right to hand the reigns over to Tony and the team to execute on the long term plan.”
