I hope to show women worldwide that their great ideas can be achieved

Erin Balogh, CEO of Holster Brands, was presented with the Bronze Stevie® Award in the Female Entrepreneur of the Year in the Business Products category for businesses with ten employees or less. This is Balogh’s first year being nominated for the international award.

Holster Brands creates safe and clever solutions for organizing all the things in your life. Each product is 100% heat resistant silicone consisting of two parts: a pocket for holding household items, and a flap that grips to smooth surfaces. Holster Brands expanded in 2014 to include three product lines: Hot Iron Holster, Lil’ Holster, and Hobby Holster.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business are the world’s top honors for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run.

“I feel so honored to be nominated with such a talented group of women,” said Balogh. “Receiving the Bronze Stevie Award is a great inspiration and challenge to continue expanding Holster Brands. I hope to show women worldwide that their great ideas can be achieved.”

The 11th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business was presented Friday, November 14 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York.

There were more than 1,200 nominations in more than 90 categories for the 2014 awards ceremony, with entries from 22 nations and territories worldwide. Erin Balogh was recognized for her entrepreneurship in the Business Products category.

Balogh started Holster Brands in 2012, after seeking a solution to the lack of counter space allotted with her pedestal sink. Holster Brands’ flagship product, the Hot Iron Holster, is sold internationally and projects over $1.4 million in sales for 2014. The company now has three product lines designed to efficiently organize the home and simplify daily routines.
