dayspamagazine.com | AUGUST 2016 81 EXPORTING EXCELLENCE In recognition for its contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports, Iredale Mineral Cosmetics (IMC) has received the President's "E" Award for Exports. The award was presented at a special ceremony in Washington, D.C., by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker to company founder and president Jane Iredale. The IMC brand is distributed in over 50 countries worldwide, and Iredale reports that 30% of IMC's revenue comes from export sales, which has "enabled us to sustain jobs and even expand our work force domestically." The "E" symbol of exporting excellence was established by President Kennedy in 1961 to recognize American companies that help strengthen this key aspect of the economy. It's estimated that in 2015, exports supported an estimated 11.5 million jobs. This year, 123 companies were honored with the award. "The 'E' Awards Committee was very impressed with Iredale Mineral Cosmetics' emphasis on comprehensive market research used for strategic market entry," noted Secretary Pritzker. "The company's investment in multi-language marketing materials and website design was also particularly notable." dayspamagazine.com/freeinfo Programmed to Succeed The Professional Beauty Association (PBA) has announced the winners of its annual Beacon program, created to help promising cosmetology students prepare for successful careers in the beauty industry.
