Leading skincare company continues award-winning streak, earning one silver and one bronze award for business excellence.

Nerium International was named a bronze winner in the Fastest-Growing Company of the Year (Medium) category in the 2014 Best in Biz Awards competition. Additionally, Nerium’s Chief Marketing Officer, Amber Olson Rourke, received a silver award in the Marketing Executive of the Year category. The Best in Biz Awards is the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.

Best in Biz Awards 2014 honors were presented in 60 categories, including Company of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, Most Innovative Company of the Year, Best Place to Work, Technology Department of the Year, Executive of the Year, Most Innovative Product of the Year, Best New Product of the Year, PR Campaign of the Year and Website of the Year.

Since its foundation in 2011, Nerium has been recognized as the youngest company ever to make the Direct Selling News’ Global 100 List and receive the Bravo Growth Award from Direct Selling News for hitting $100 million in sales during its first full year of business. In 2014, Nerium was recognized for the second year in a row on Direct Selling News’ Global Top 100 List, jumping from number 86 to number 54. With its record-breaking growth, Nerium also warranted a slot on the Success Partners $100 Million Growth Club.

As Co-Founder and CMO at Nerium International, Amber Olson Rourke has demonstrated excellence, creativity and initiative while leading one of the most successful skincare launches in history. Amber is responsible for all of Nerium’s branding, creative services, communications, public relations, events, digital marketing and social media. By setting and executing effective marketing strategies, she’s been instrumental in growing the company’s revenue to more than $400 million in just three years.

“This year has been an outstanding year for Nerium, as we’ve continued to grow our business, and build our reputation as an award-winning company,” said CEO Jeff Olson. “These awards are truly an honor that reflect all of the hard work by Amber and our team. This is just the beginning for Nerium, and we look forward to expanding this success in 2015.”

Best in Biz Awards’ fourth annual North American program was its most competitive awards program yet. As in previous years, the fourth annual program in North America featured a large and distinguished judging panel comprised of members of the media who reviewed and scored the award nominations. More than 550 award nominations were received this year in a variety of company, executive, team and product focused categories. Nominations were fielded from public and private companies of all sizes, and from virtually every major industry and region in the U.S. and Canada.

“The quality of the entries in Best in Biz Awards 2014 was exceptionally, delightfully high,” said business management columnist and author, Dale Dauten, who returned to the competition for his fourth year as a judge. “Even though I spend my days working with and writing about innovative organizations, as I reviewed the materials of the Best in Biz nominees, I realized I was talking to myself, repeatedly saying, ‘Oh, that’s good!’ and ‘Whoa, now that’s clever!’ You can feel the creative energy flowing through these organizations and the joy that goes with it.”

Winners of Best in Biz Awards 2014 were determined based on scoring from an independent panel of 53 judges from highly recognized newspapers, business, consumer and technology publications, radio outlets and analyst firms.
