"We are thrilled to be recognized within this prestigious group of honorees whose vision and passion are creating the future of enterprise and making life better in so many ways."
The American Business Awards are presented through the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations ---public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. This year, more than 3,200 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted. The winners were selected by more than 320 executives nationwide.
As a leading dermatologist-developed skincare company, Rodan + Fields has experienced impressive growth since the launch of their micro-enterprise business model in 2008. In 2012, sales nearly doubled and Consultant numbers skyrocketed from 17,800 in 2011 to 30,000. The unique Rodan + Fields business model offers Independent Consultants the ability to leverage the Rodan + Fields brand via a suite of advanced digital business tools, enabling home-based businesses to compete with major retail brands for a share of the growing anti-aging skincare market.
"This year’s American Business Awards was outsized in every way," said Michael Gallagher, Stevie Awards founder and president. "More entries and more judges than ever before, and I’d have to say the most impressive collection of nominations we’ve ever received. We congratulate all of this year’s Stevie winners for their outstanding work."
