Matt Titlow, CEO

Matt has been in the nutraceutical industry since 2002. He became Compound Solutions’ CEO in 2011, and since then he has been spearheading the company’s vision to maximize human potential. His vision manifests itself by finding, researching and representing ingredients from around the world that are backed by science and that lead to improved cognitive and physical performance.

Kim Sickinger, President

Kim joined CSI as President in 2016, bringing with her an extensive background transforming businesses in the medical device and dental industries. Her talent for strengthening infrastructures can be seen all along her career path as she’s taken multiple start-ups to public offering, and failing businesses back to cashflow positive. During her time at CSI, she has brought together a management team positioned to drive the business into the next era of growth.


Our Service Team

We’re a proud small business and that means every time you call, you will get the same dedicated team answering questions and finding solutions. Your CSI team is comprised of an Account Manager, Sales Support Rep, and Customer Experience reps who pride themselves on speed, accuracy and anticipating your business’ unique needs.

Our History

CSI was founded by Barry and Valerie Titlow in 1998. Matt’s been at the helm for 3 incarnations of the business which includes a shift from targeting the mass market to diving head-first into the sports nutrition market, then again as CSI’s conventional ingredients have taken a backseat to wellness-maximizing proprietary ingredients.

Heard of CarnoSyn? If so, that’s because CSI proudly represented the ingredient until 2015. Heard of TeaCrine®? If so, that’s because CSI launched, represented and popularized it from 2015 to present. It is now included in more than 200 different products you can find on the shelves at your local nutrition shop.

With two proprietary best-sellers under our belt, we now represent 14 of the best patented/trademarked ingredients that are paving the way in human wellness.

As for the personalities in the building, we are a passionate bunch serving customers around the globe from our Carlsbad, California headquarters. We are obsessed with ingredient organoleptics. We like to plant gardens and eat the vegetables we’ve grown for #SaladThursday. We’ve made it a thing! And sometimes we laugh too loud.


Getting social in the field with Team CSI


We are building a global team of ambassadors/influencers who want to maximize their potential every single day. Our team is filled with personal trainers, bodybuilders, biohackers, gamers, and the list is growing!

Compound Solutions established The Farmacy Initiative in 2018. It's here to help future generations learn the power of eating vegetables, because we believe that whole foods are the foundation of maximizing human potential.
