Ryan Drexler is a former senior executive at Country Life vitamins, which his father Halbert sold to Kikkoman in 2007. In 2009, Drexler offered to purchase all outstanding shares of Nutraceutical Corp. in an all-cash deal worth roughly $115 million, but was rebuffed by the board.
Drexler paid $7.15 million for this 5,300 sq. foot Trousdale Estates home in early 2011. Within a few weeks, he also purchased a second Trousdale Estates home a few streets away for an additional $13 million.
