“Beauty Industry West’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award is presented to very few distinguished individuals who have made a significant contribution to our industry,” says BIW President, Irena Kojouharova.
After a warm welcome from Kojouharova and a brief introduction, the Markhams shared their personal story and pathway to success. “It is a tremendous honor to be recognized as Entrepreneur of the Year,” said Jim. “My late dear friend and mentor, Paul Newman, once said that some people have a little luck and some have big luck. I was fortunate enough to be blessed with the latter.”
The Markhams are quick to share their good fortune with others as demonstrated through their commitment to City of Hope and the Paul Newman Serious Fun Children’s Network. According to Cheryl, “Success without giving back is not success.”
Attendees were gifted with ColorProof’s top-selling SuperRich™ Moisture Shampoo and Condition along with a printed list of Jim’s key life lessons. As for parting words of wisdom, Jim closed by sharing, “It is not where you’ve been but where you are going …. We are all designed to succeed.”
The Markhams have launched multiple successful brands and companies, including Sebring, Markham, ABBA Pure & Natural, PureOlogy Serious Color Care and their latest entry, ColorProof Evolved Color Care.
