San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2013

Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc. (OTC Markets: VEND), the nation’s largest healthy vending machine company, recently welcomed Steve Finley, former Major League Baseball player with an impressive professional career spanning 19 years, to its board of directors.

As an outfielder for eight Major League teams, including the San Diego Padres and Arizona Diamondbacks, with whom he won the World Series in 2001, Finley is an acknowledged active proponent of good nutrition for athletes and youth.

“Throughout my career, I’m proud to have been recognized for my workout programs and emphasis on nutrition, as I believe your health is the foundation that sets you up to succeed in other areas of your life,” explains Finley. “Now that I can focus more of my time and energy on my passion for health and fitness, joining the Fresh Healthy Vending board is a natural fit for me and a perfect opportunity for me to continue spreading the knowledge and emphasizing the importance of good nutrition.”

Finley, who resides in San Diego, credits his extended baseball career to working alongside a nutritionist, who instilled in him the importance of a healthy diet. At 41 years old in 2006, Finley became the oldest player ever to play more than 100 games in center-field and, to this day, still follows the strict nutrition guidelines set forth by his nutritionist.

Finley hopes to use the new position on the board as a platform for promoting balanced nutrition and combating childhood obesity. “I have always promoted healthy eating with my family; from the lunches my kids take to school to the snacks they eat,” said Finley. “I love the products in these machines and would gladly choose them for my own kids. I’m looking forward to making a positive impact alongside Fresh Healthy Vending.”

As a member of the Fresh Healthy Vending board of directors, Finley will act as a media ambassador for the company as well as serving on its board.

“We are thrilled to have Steve join our board of directors. He’s an Olympic medalist, All-Star MVP, Gold Glove Winner and he won a World Series,” said Alex Kennedy, CEO of Fresh Healthy Vending International, Inc. “His lifelong commitment to fitness and nutrition and his personal and professional experience will be of great benefit to our company and its goals.”

The appointment of Finley to the board also comes as the Company announced the launch of its Fresh Healthy Touch machine: the first-ever digital healthy vending machine. The interactive, fully customizable machine boasts a 46-inch, 3D touchscreen powered by Intel Processor.
