MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global healthy-aging haircare, skincare and wellness innovator, MONAT Global Corp (MONAT), received two awards at the 2021 Stevie Awards. The American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
MONAT won the following awards:
Nomination: MONAT Global CEO Ray Urdaneta
Category: Entrepreneur of the Year - Retail
Status: Gold Stevie Winner
Nomination: MONAT Global
Category: Company of the Year - Retail - Large
Status: Bronze Stevie Winner
“2020 was a difficult year globally for most retail, but MONAT was prepared and able to find the silver lining to continue the momentum from our growth in 2019 because we had the tools and community in place to motivate our independent sales force of Market Partners,” said Ray Urdaneta, co-founder and CEO, MONAT Global. “MONAT is only six years old, and the success MONAT has experienced is a testament to our incredible team. Being recognized by the U.S. premier business awards is impactful to our business and I am thrilled that MONAT has earned this recognition.”
MONAT experienced remarkable milestones in 2020, including its expansion from haircare and skincare into wellness products. The rollout of MONAT Wellness, a five-piece, custom-formulated and scientifically backed collection, sold a record-breaking $10 million in its first 24 hours, nearly three times the brand's first-day projection and 10% of its aggressive first-year forecast. The Miami-based global brand attributes its rapid growth to the company’s effective products, its VIP customers, and its independent sales force, known as Market Partners.
“I am proud that Ray has been recognized once again by the Stevie Awards for outstanding leadership,” said Stuart MacMillan, president, MONAT Global. “His success story shows that hard work pays off, and I cannot think of anyone more deserving of this award.”
The complete list of Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners by category is published on the ABA website here. Winners will be recognized in June during a virtual ceremony.
