Beauty Accessory Company Recognized as one of the Fastest-Growing Private Companies in America by Inc. Magazine for the Second Year in a Row
GURNEE, Ill. (Aug. 31, 2016) – Paris Presents Incorporated, a leading global, privately held company that creates and distributes beauty products, has been named to Inc. 5000’s prestigious list of fastest-growing private companies for the second year in a row. The list, comprised of America’s powerhouse companies, showcases leaders in areas of strategy, service and innovation. Paris Presents ranks number 3564 on this year’s list, a jump up 765 spots since 2015.
For 35 years, the Inc. 5000 list has welcomed the fastest-growing private companies in America into a very exclusive club. The list is ranked according to percentage revenue growth over a three-year period.
Much of the growth of Paris Presents can be attributed to the success of their branded product lines, EcoTools®, Real Techniques® and Body Benefits by Body Image®. These brands have built credibility in the beauty space by driving strong consumer awareness, loyalty and purchase consideration. By offering beauty mavens accessible products that provide next-level performance, the company has been able to identify and penetrate key in-market opportunities to increase purchase frequency with consumers.
Crafting innovative and engaging ways in which to better drive business momentum is what has enabled our strong global growth. By tapping into consumer insights, we’ve taken our retail relationships to new heights and capitalized on new product innovation – for example, our recent expansion into the makeup sponge category for Real Techniques and first to mass makeup brush cleansing cloths for EcoTools – to meet customer and industry demands. We are extremely proud of our upward growth trend that earned our improved ranking on this year’s Inc. 5000 list,” said Patrick O’Brien, CEO of Paris Presents.
The 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8 percent of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Paris Presents shares a pedigree with other notable organizations such as Patagonia, Pandora, Microsoft, Under Armour and Square.
