Meet the Team

David Stelzer

CEO and Founder of Azure Standard

Parent company of the AzureWell brand.

David Stelzer founded Azure Standard on the principle that eating whole foods grown in healthy soil is the foundation of good health.  As an organic farmer, he understands how soil health affects our own nutrition.  As a father of 11 children, he understands how whole foods and natural remedies are important for children’s health.  And as the CEO of Azure, he understands that many people struggle to find affordable organic foods to feed their families.  It has been his personal mission to help people have access to a bounty of healthful foods.


Until recently, David personally didn’t put much focus on dietary supplements. But, then, after seeing his longtime assistant, Susan Booth’s success against cancer in 2021, he fully embraced the idea of supplementation.  “I’ve gained a new understanding about the value of adding supplements to the diet when needed. We are still talking about food. High quality whole food supplements are an incredibly powerful piece in the toolkit for wellness.”  This is the passion he brings for the AzureWell line.


Although David’s work-life and family-life merge quite a bit, when not at his desk or in meetings, you’ll find him in the garden, out in the orchards, on the farm, or spending time with his children and grandchildren.

Susan Booth

Vice President of Living Well Initiatives

Susan Booth has been with Azure for many years and has held many positions as the company has grown. She is currently the VP of Living Well Initiatives, a position specifically focused on developing the Azure Living Well division of our company, which includes the AzureWell brand.  Other initiatives are in the works to help people find true health and healing.


“It has been such a joy to work with so many people who are passionate about restoring health.  When we build strong relationships together with genuine care for each other, all of us can reach our goals better,” Susan says.


While working with health professionals and health-minded suppliers, Susan has enjoyed bringing the AzureWell brand to life.  “Through my experience recovering from a rare cancer, I got to know many practitioners who are having good success using natural methods to restore health.  It’s been amazing to watch how the Lord turned my difficult cancer journey into something that can benefit so many others.”


When not at work, Susan enjoys playing several musical instruments, reading, trying new things in the kitchen, gardening, and caring for her chickens and guinea fowl on her homestead.

Vice President of Business Development, AzureWell


H.R. Payne comes to Azure with over 20 years of high-level leadership experience in the health and supplement industry.  His vast knowledge of supplement ingredients and industry practices has helped us develop the line and his product descriptions are meticulously crafted to share in-depth knowledge about each product.


“AzureWell is directly in line with the ethos of Azure Standard,” H.R. shares. “We have created an uncompromised, ethically-sourced collection for wellness. There is a revolution occurring in the science behind dietary supplementation. AzureWell has infused the most active natural compounds, many from botanicals, and encapsulated them, so we can get a greater concentration of nature’s healing power into our bodies. It is the power of nature informed by scientific research. It is the future of true healthcare.”


On the personal side, he tells us, “Over the past several decades, I've journeyed through the world of holistic health and wellness, on a path of knowledge and nurturing a deep-rooted passion to understanding limitless healing. Joining the Azure team was a choice that goes beyond the label but a serendipitous alignment of our shared values and mission.  I cherish the Azure family and what it stands for, not just its commitment to crafting the highest quality natural products, but its ethos: the purity of nature, the integrity of honest work, and the promise to mankind to do right by our bodies and our planet.  They, we are doing it because we genuinely care about your health and the world we all share. At the heart of our Azure Family is an uncompromised commitment to living abundantly well while cherishing our planet’s delicate balance, and every AzureWell product is a heartfelt testament to that promise.”
