More than 70 percent of purchases are made through digital channels, and mobile is the fastest-growing platform. It also ships more than million food items annually — boxed kits containing meals that are shipped and delivered on doorsteps. Indeed, Nutrisystem's deal with Walmart marked the brand's first foray into retail stores. When Zier arrived, "I did what my engineering training taught me," she said.

She said she was able to maintain the weight by preparing healthier meals, such as grilled chicken with a salad.

But her boyfriend, John Ferragut, 54, had less success when he went on the Nutrisystem program for six months last year. He has since switched to just having Atkins protein shakes for lunch and a light dinner. Guidance for implies that the Company will have its fourth consecutive year of double-digit growth. At the outset, she put in place a facts-based culture that drives a focus on priorities, accountability, customer-centricity, and teamwork.

In recognition of her overall professional impact, Dawn was named a Power Woman. Most recently, she was recognized by Institutional Investor magazine as one of the best CEOs nationwide.

Over the years, she has also served on boards and chaired committees for multiple marketing and media entities, including the Data and Marketing Association's DMA Board from to , where she was a voting director and on the executive committee. While there, Dawn held numerous leadership positions throughout her tenure culminating with President of the international business, the company's largest division, responsible for nearly a billion dollars of revenue and 1, employees across Europe, Asia Pacific and Latin America.
