Chief of Staff
Right-hand man to Heidi and Orville Thompson, Sam oversees everything that happens at Scentsy on their behalf. With nearly 20 years of entrepreneurial and project management experience, he understands and delivers on our values of Simplicity, Authenticity and Generosity.
Sam joined Scentsy in 2010, when he took on the planning and development of Scentsy Commons. It took 4 years to complete the 73-acre, award-winning campus. By the time the final group of employees had settled in, Sam had become indispensable, applying his extensive project management skills to helping Heidi and Orville run Scentsy.
When they’re not busy cheering on their four kids in sports or dance, he and his wife of 18 years love to go out to dinner and a movie. As a family, they can often be found adventuring in the mountains and travelling to new places.
