CircusTrix names Eiroa as new CEO
CircusTrix, the world’s largest developer and operator of indoor active recreation centers, announced this week the appointment of Fernando Eiroa as CEO.
The company, founded in 2011, has expanded rapidly, adding 50 new locations in 2018 alone. Currently, the company, which also franchises its active recreation centers, has over 260 locations in the U.S. and over 320 total locations globally in nearly 20 countries.
Eiroa served as the CEO of Parques Reunidos, a leisure park operator with over 60 locations in 14 countries, until last year. The company generated more than $650 million in revenue in 2018. Before that, Eiroa served as the president and CEO of California-based Palace Entertainment, the largest U.S.-based subsidiary of Parques Reunidos.
“As the demand for experiential entertainment continues to increase in the U.S. and worldwide, Fernando’s level of leisure industry experience and global background makes him a unique leader to guide CircusTrix to even greater success,” Allen Rodriguez, executive chairman of the CircusTrix board of directors, said. “We are particularly thrilled to benefit from his expertise in building world-class experiences as CircusTrix continually enhances how our more than 40 million annual visitors enjoy our parks.”
Eiroa is taking over for Case Lawrence, CircusTrix’s founder. According to a press release, Lawrence will remain “actively involved” in the company as a significant shareholder, advisor, and chairman of the board’s real estate and innovations committees.
“I am excited to join the CircusTrix team, and I look forward to leading the company as it continues to achieve its strategic objectives in the experiential entertainment industry. CircusTrix is the premier new trend in this industry based on fun, physical activity that is directly relatable to social media-minded Gen Z,” Eiroa said. “After 15 years in the traditional leisure park space, I appreciate the effort and expertise required to build the exciting recreational concept of the future. CircusTrix is a game changer.”
Company invents ‘smart toilet’
to analyze health
Medic.life has been working since 1999 to perfect technology for an AI toilet that monitors key health and wellness indicators, tracking data and identifying trends without interrupting users’ daily routines.
Medic’s products are currently in late alpha testing and moving into clinical trials. The company hopes to make the products commercially available to care providers, facilities and individuals in two to three years.
“The digital health revolution is here and making it progressively easier for people and their health advisors to get vital information so they can help avoid becoming ill and needing treatment,” said David Hall, Medic’s founder. “We are creating the means to be proactive instead of reactive with health.”
The Medic Lav “smart toilet” currently gathers four health metrics passively during each bathroom visit and uses AI technology to analyze them, according to a press release. The company is currently developing 15 additional health metrics.
The toilet is motion-activated and recognizes each user. Technology being developed has the potential to analyze human waste and other bodily functions to identify abnormal trends when symptoms show up, the press release says.
In addition to technology designed to monitor health, the toilet also integrates a bidet, heated seat, air dryer and fume extractor. An app called the Medic app allows participants to access their personal health trends and can provide alerts via a smart phone, watch or computer. Data and trends are encrypted and HIPPA compliant, and users can choose to have the information sent to their doctor, family and health care providers.
“Medic has the potential to be a multi-billion-dollar participant in the health care industry,” Hall said. “Medic’s toilet-based infrastructure is revolutionary in its ability to prevent health problems instead of curing them.”

Dominion Energy approves
for Mobile School Pantry
The Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation recently approved a $50,000 grant to support the expansion of the Mobile School Pantry.
The Mobile School Pantry began in 2014 with one school. Today it serves 68 schools across the state of Utah. Dominion Energy has worked with the Mobile School Pantry, providing both funding and volunteers, since 2015.
“We never want anyone to go hungry, especially children,” Ron Jorgensen, Dominion Energy Vice President of Western Pipeline Operations and Utah Food Bank board member, said. “When children are hungry, they can’t concentrate on learning. We believe in the Utah Food Bank’s mission of fighting hunger statewide. Supporting the Mobile School Pantry gives us an opportunity to help those in our own backyard.”
Last year, 340,000 individuals received food from the program, 169,000 of which were children.
“We are incredibly grateful to Dominion Energy for their support of the Mobile School Pantry program,” Ginette Bott, Utah Food Bank President & CEO, said. “As we continue to expand this important program to Utah and Washington counties, their support means we can have an even greater impact on the 1 in 7 Utah children who face hunger.”
