Tarl Justin Robinson
What the current CEO of Plexus Worldwide is all about
"We have a philosophy of treating people first-class,"
"The last time your average 45-year-old had a round of applause for them was when they walked across a high school or college stage to receive their diploma. Recognition is key."
Wow! What a douche bag!
Maybe by the time Tarl hits 45 he will realize
what an insult that statement is
how it does not fall under the category of
"treating people first-class"
|Alfred Pettersen, past Plexus President, sues Plexus and Tarl Robinson|
Tarl Justin Robinson, current CEO of Plexus Worldwide Inc.
Tarl has made his way from Washington to Arizona where he currently plays the role as CEO of Plexus Worldwide, a multi-million dollar operation.
Until recently, I was confused about what Tarl Robinson had to bring to the table. Even more so confused when Plexus president Alfred Pettersen left, and Tarl took over the reigns. I finally found some time to devote to finishing my information quest on this young man. Born Feb. 1978. Now that I'm somewhat done, I can share it all with you.
I'm assuming that Tarl Robinson is the son of Shirley Pontious of Washington. Tarl's biological father, Mark Wayne Robinson passed away July 30 2004. Shirley married the late MLM legend Ken Pontious of Enrich. Ken passed away in 1999. It has been said that Kenneth E Pontious made more money than the president of the United States at one point in time. Due to his health, it is said that the passed away due to brain cancer, he had a living trust and Shirley was named.
So it is clear to me now, that the connection that exists between Tarl Robinson and Alfred Pettersen is one of many years of business dealings in some way or other. I would assume that due to the age difference, the dealings were mostly with either Ken Pontious or Shirley. Alfred was also with Enrich, and verified by documents that take us back to: www.teamparagon.com where it shows us that in July 1997 Alfred Pettersen was a speaker in Hawaii representing Enrich under Ken Pontious and TEAM Paragon.
I've always thought that Tarl was being used as "a face" for other reasons. I can only imagine that those other reasons have to do with what one does in the business world to hide money and so on. I'm not saying this is the case, but I have a vivid, active imagination, and what I have been learning about the world of MLM's and weight loss products, nothing surprises me any more.

Have you ever heard of the Plexus Advisory Board?
There are more gaps to fill in the missing years, which will be done as my time allows.
While you wait for me.. Please VOTE for Tarl!
Smoke and Mirrors is common place in this industry.
Let's point out some things:
Fact 1: Tarl's history with Shirley Pontious dates back many years, and man business investments together.
Fact 2: Alfred Pettersen is listed on Team Paragon's website in 1997
The Plexus Story
Two of Plexus’ owners got their start in the industry as distributors—Plexus’ International President Alfred Pettersen and CEO Tarl Robinson. Pettersen joined his first direct sales company in 1992. Soon he became one of the company’s top distributors in his home country of Canada. “I thought I had a horse that I could throw my retirement saddle on and ride into the sunset,” Pettersen says. But then, in 2001, his company merged with another direct sales company. The first month, he saw his earnings drop by half. After 9/11, sales got even worse. It was then that Pettersen decided he wanted to own his own network marketing company someday. “I wanted to do network marketing as it could be done and should be done,” he says.
He got his opportunity when he discovered a company called Plexus Worldwide in Scottsdale, Ariz. Plexus had only one product, and it was non-consumable. They were selling a Breast Chek Kit to help women screen themselves for breast cancer. Pettersen was marketing a breast cream that he believed could increase the company’s sales, but Plexus turned him down after months of negotiation. The founder had discovered he had a life-threatening illness and planned to shut the company down. Instead, he agreed to sell the company to Pettersen.
But Pettersen needed an investor. Though still quite young, Robinson had been a successful distributor at various direct sales companies. Now he was looking for investment opportunities in the industry. The two men hit it off, and Robinson became Pettersen’s partner.
HELLO>> Who forgot to mention that Petterson was with Unicity/Enrich.and this:Fact 4: "he was looking for investment opportunities in the industry" WHY?
Jim Goble's first attempt to market it is through a large network marketing company called Unicity. They enthusiastically place an initial order and the product moves briskly for two to three months while it is the center of attention. However, the company has 250 other products and distributors are actively encouraged to focus their energies there.
Tarl had moved on to real estate sales for many years, why would HE want to get back into this sort of business.
Does this look like someone that wants to be all business minded?
Fact 5: This does not look like the same signature, there are several on file similar to the second. (Just throwing this in here.)
Fact 6: In 2007 Alfred Pettersen and Gregory Spencer formed "Spencer Intellectual Properties, Inc." along with Jimmy Kossert and Noah Sifuentes (of Dominion Resorts International, whom has his own business associates)
Fact 7: As stated above "The founder had discovered he had a life-threatening illness and planned to shut the company down. Instead, he agreed to sell the company to Pettersen."
Yet it fails to mention the name of this founder. Is it James Goble or Bill Brooksher?
?? Jan Janzen, President of Plexus Pink Dated late 2008 ~ taken from actual Plexus Pink records
Didn't Alfred say he needed an investor? Why isn't Jan Janzen mentioned? Perhaps they are just lying to people again.
Random Stuff found that you may or may not care about;
In 2015, after publication of this, a youtube video published where Tarl Pontious speaks out about himself. He bashes Enrich/Unicity and tells a bit about his past. If you google, Tarl Robinson Interview, you should find it.
Do you think it was damage control or do you think that someone wants to make some money of their youtube videos?
Ken Pontious was also a former Real Estate Entrepreneur
Tarl Robinson purchased a 6,920 square-foot home with pool built in 1953 northeast of Camelback Mountain in Paradise Valley. Robinson is chief executive officer of Plexus Worldwide, a direct sales company in Scottsdale. He is also a Realtor, focusing on housing development, land speculation and commercial real estate. The home was sold by Scott McPherson, a principal at Capital Advisory Group in Phoenix.
I like the last part... "focusing on housing development..."
Wonder if his focus explains his 2010 fine from the department of real estate in Arizona.
What Plexus had said about Tarl"
""Tarl Robinson was born, raised and educated in Washington State. Tarl is a successful entrepreneur who brings to Plexus Pink extensive business experience and knowledge.
In 1999, while attending Pacific Lutheran University, Tarl became a distributor in a network marketing company. He built a large organization which continued to pay him a substantial income for 8 years.
Also, while at University, he spent two successful seasons as a franchisee for College Pro Painters.
In 2002, he moved to Scottsdale, Arizona, to manage an excavating business that his family had acquired.
In 2004, when his family sold the excavating business, Tarl became a trust manager, working with several multi-million dollar trusts and their entities. He continues with that work today.
In 2005, while still managing the trusts, he became a licensed realtor in the state of Arizona. He has also been very successful in real estate.
Today, he is a shareholder in the company and the Chief Financial Officer.""
Chief Executive Officer
Tarl Robinson was born, raised and educated in Washington State. Tarl is a successful and experienced entrepreneur who brings extensive business knowledge to Plexus.
In 1999, while attending Pacific Lutheran University, Tarl became a distributor in a network marketing company. He built a large organization — specializing in nutritional and weight loss products — which continued to earn him a substantial income for 8 years. Also while at University, he spent two successful seasons as a franchisee for College Pro Painters.
Tarl relocated to Scottsdale, Arizona in 2002 in order to manage an excavating business and utilize his business skills. Here, Tarl gained an essential understanding of the financing and accounting aspects of thriving business.
Though his network marketing business continued to grow, Tarl felt that he needed to further expand his business expertise. So, in 2004, Tarl became a trust manager, working with several multi-million dollar trusts and their entities. Even today Tarl continues that work, gaining substantial experience with multiple corporations.
In 2005, Tarl became a licensed realtor in the state of Arizona. Focusing on housing development, land speculation, and commercial real estate, Tarl has found much success in his real estate endeavors.
Today, Tarl is a shareholder in Plexus and the Chief Executive Officer. His goal is to cultivate Plexus to its full potential as the widespread and flourishing business that he knows it can be.""
The major difference from the one dated 2008 are highlighted.
The truth of the matter is this..
