Comments: Six-year-old Nerium International is another direct sales company that is expanding at a rapid rate. During the past year, the company has established businesses in Hong Kong and Australia and Colombia, where, according to company executives, it passed $1 million in sales during its first month of operation.
Just last month the company announced that it had cracked the Direct Selling Association’s Top 20 companies list for the second year in a row.
“Since we opened our door for business just shy of six years ago, we have focused on providing first-of-kind, science-based skin care and wellness products and groundbreaking business opportunities,” said Nerium International president Deborah K. Heisz. “It is an honor to be recognized among many long-established companies in our industry for the second consecutive year, and it reminds us to continue to stay committed to our mission of ‘making people better,’ and our loving, caring, sharing philosophy.”
